Written DirectionsA verbal description of how to find Connersville Indiana is as follows: Take I-70 east out of Indianapolis, IN for about 40 miles. Off of I-70, take exit #137 (Route 1) south to the town of Connersville to begin the route. From Connersville, head south on route 121 until you get to route 52 and take that east for a few miles to the town of Metamora. From Metamora, turn around and head about 1/2 mile back west on 52 and catch state route 229 south to Peppertown, Oldenburg, and on to Batesville. Next take state route 46 east to and through Morris and on to St. Leon and continue on 46 till it meets 52. Now take 52 north on to New Trenton and up to Brookville where you want to look for state route 101 heading north. This route will take you past the Mounds State Recreation Area and the Whitewater Memorial State Park. After the town of Liberty, take US route 27 north up to Richmond. From Richmond, finish your route by heading west along US 40 ("The Old National Highway") towards Centerville.
SceneryThis ride stands out because of its great combination of beautiful scenery, plenty of amenities to get you off the bike and great rolling hills to keep you throttle wrist moving. Portions of this route travel along a section of Route 40 which has been designated by the US Dept of Transportation as an official National Scenic Byway.
Along this route you will see some beautiful river valley scenery as well as a very large reservoir. The route mostly travels through beautiful Indiana woodlands and goes through some nicely kept up old towns where you will see some exciting churches and courthouses.
