Ride the Fault Line
Cycle through four 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 6 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”! Music and “adult beverage” opportunities most evenings. Average 60 miles a day riding on mostly flat terrain with a few hilly sections to keep things interesting! Located within an easy day’s drive of over 30 central U.S. cities. Special pricing for groups, kids, mature riders, and “early-bird” registrants. Great first ride for those new to multi-day tours.
