Whitesburg KY

Ready to meet the ‘Challenge’



Bike riders from as far away as Miami, Florida and New Jersey traveled to Letcher County over the weekend to compete in the fifth annual Pine Mountain Summit Challenge hosted by the Letcher County Cycling Club. Above, riders gathered on Main Street in Whitesburg to await the start of Saturday morning’s most demanding race, a 44.5-mile journey that included mountain climbs totaling more than 4,000 feet. A “simpler” recreational route took riders to the top of Pine Mountain via Whitco and Little Cowan. (Photo by Thomas Biggs)
