Ride the Fault Line
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. You transport yourself, your bike, and gear
between the three sites in your own vehicle for maximum convenience, safety, and flexibility. Camp in a tent, indoors in a gym, or use the hotel option. Average 50-60 miles a day riding moderately hilly terrain. Longer options available for serious riders! Great first ride for those new to multi-day tours.
