Scenic Routes for Cyclists in and around Brunswick County     BCP1.jpg (91079 bytes)

Brunswick County and surrounding counties offer enough options to keep any cyclist happy. The roads traverse beautiful coastal countryside and provide access to waterfront, state forests and the Hoosier National Forest. The Brunswick Bicycle Club bears no responsibility for the safety of riders who may use the routes we suggest. We urge you to wear a helmet, to watch for traffic, and to avoid riding alone. Keep an eye out for dogs and deer too. Before you let your wheels sing on a fast descent, think about your options if a deer should leap out from the woods. Believe us, we've seen it...

Favorite routes on paved roads in and around Brunswick County

We consider the roads in and around Brunswick County wonderful for bicyclists, but others consider them great for motorcycles, would-be stock- and sports car racers, boat trailers, horse trailers, and so on. Very few of the roads in and around Brunswick County have been designated as official bicycle routes. Frankly speaking, the city and the county have some work to do before these roads can compete for the title of bicycle friendly.
