BIKING BROWN COUNTY
Road cycling and mountain biking among southern Indiana's hills

STATE PARK RIDE. Anyone unfamiliar with Indiana may not appreciate the privilege of riding in Brown County, Indiana. But those who know Indiana know Brown County to be the home of quaint Nashville, beautiful Brown County State Park (breaktaking views, too), and some of the most challenging hill climbs for bicycles in the region. Part of the annual Hilly Hundred fall bicycle tour passes through Nashville and over some steep climbs. In Nashville for a conference on Monday and Tuesday, I was able to get away for a couple hours each day for some vigorous--if cold and wet--riding.
