Welcome Cyclists

Welcome to  Historic Downtown Lexington.cropped-wordpress-stroll-feature-1-of-1.jpg

What fun to bike through our charming town and our beautiful countryside!   The hills can be challenging, but you can look forward to stopping here, spending the night and enjoying our restaurants & shops.

Let’s get your bicycle parked first.

There are several year round bike racks (Blue) and an informal one along a fence (Green).  Bike racks are also scattered around the Washington & Lee campus.
