The 4th annual Pine Mountain Summit Challenge bicycle race will be held this Saturday, August 18, beginning in downtown Whitesburg at 9 a.m. Members of the Letcher County Cycling Club, which sponsors the event, says this year’s Challenge will be the toughest yet, featuring a new “Expert Route,” a 42-mile tour that begins on Main Street in Whitesburg and includes parts of U.S. 119 and Kentucky highways 931, 588, and 160. A 37-mile intermediate route and an 11-mile short route will also be featured. The firing of a Civil War cannon in front of the Letcher County Courthouse will mark the start of the event. The public is invited to attend.
