Ride the Fault Line
June 1 @ 11:00 am - June 7 @ 5:00 pm
Cycle through portions of 4 states in the heart of the mid-Mississippi valley, visiting portions of Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Cross all 4 states off your list in just one 7-day tour! Experience the history of, and see landforms created by the Great New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-1812. Tour a 100+ year old courthouse clock tower; 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. Cross the mighty Mississippi River on one of the last remaining riverboat ferries. Experience “southern hospitality” and “taste-test” some fresh-baked cakes! Vacuum pack your own can of Kentucky “munchin’ pecans”! Visit a winery and a moonshine distillery! Music and “adult beverage” opportunities on some evenings. Average 60 miles a day riding on flat to moderately hilly terrain. Located within an easy day’s drive of over 30 central U.S. cities. Special pricing for groups, kids, and mature riders. Great first ride for those new to multi-day tours.
