Ride the Fault Line
June 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am - June 26, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Cycle through 4 states in the heart of the mid-Mississippi Valley, visiting portions of Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee . Add 4 states to your list in just one 7-day tour! Cross the mighty Mississippi River on one of the last remaining riverboat ferries. Experience the history of, and see landforms created by the Great New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-1812. Tour a Civil War era mansion and museum, and check out a battlefield and restored early 1900’s one-room schoolhouse. Visit one of the nation’s premier wildlife refuges and possibly spot a bald eagle or two. Vacuum pack your own can of Kentucky “munchin’ pecans”! Only three overnight stops with routes to ride from each means more time cycling, less time setting up/tearing down. Camp in a tent, indoors in a gym, or use the hotel option. Average 50 miles a day riding moderately hilly terrain. Great first ride for those new to multi-day tours.
