Bicyclists are attracted to Fayette County like bees to honey. The spandex-clad riders come mostly in clusters, from small club groups to huge annual migrations like the MS-150.

More often these loners are bound coast to coast, usually west to east. That’s because Fayette County is on what’s known as the Southern Tier Bicycle Route from San Diego, California to St. Augustine, Florida.
