2005 WKBT Photo Gallery - Page 2

Instead of a grand tour of the Jackson Purchase as in years past, this fourth edition of the West Kentucky Bike Tour traversed the rugged terrain of the Pennyrile region of Western Kentucky.
Rick "The Trailboss" Holeman continued in his role as the organizing force behind the WKBT. Also returning were many veterans of past WKBT: Steve "Big Ring" Agent, Earl Crowe, and Duc Do. There are also a couple of newcomers: Joe Argabrite and Rod Tompkins, who quickly learned about the best-kept gem of Kentucky cycling: a tour in Western Kentucky.
Rick Holeman offered his WKBT photo collection on Webshot.com.
