Biking Carroll County

Welcome to biking in Carroll County… where 10 loop tours, consisting of over 150 miles of cycling, offer varying degrees of difficulty.  Our bike tours provide the recreational cyclist a unique view of scenic back roads while highlighting scenic stops and historic attractions.  The detailed color-coded routes offer cyclists a preview of slopes that will be encountered, and will enable cyclists to quickly plan routes based on length and difficulty.

Cyclists are encouraged to assess the relative physical conditions of the roads for safety.  Furthermore, traffic volume and speed can vary greatly with time of day and day of the week.  Therefore, these factors must be evaluated by each cyclist when determining route safety.

And, if you want to explore our County further, consider an overnight stay at one of our quaint B&Bs or our reasonably priced hotels. When you finish your ride or need a break, stop by one of the many restaurants, coffee shops, or bakeries along our Main Streets for a relaxing meal or a take-away lunch.

Contact the Carroll County Visitor Center, 1-800-272-1933, or Email us at cctourism@ccg.carr.org for a print copy of the Bike Tours in Carroll County.
