Find out why the Natchez Trace Parkway is one of the most popular paved bike tours in the country. On this 10-day adventure we’ll pedal every inch of the 444 miles linking the southern Appalachian foothills and the bluffs of the lower Mississippi River. We will follow the same route travelled by American Indians, bison, pioneer mail couriers, European settlers, soldiers, boatmen delivering their goods, and outlaws on the run. We’ll ride along forested ridges, broad valleys, isolated hollows, and even visit several Civil War sites, including the town that Grant said was “too beautiful to burn. “Highlights include: Emerald Mound, the historic Mount Locust Inn, stunning overlooks, Cypress Swamp, Sunken Trace, and the 1,648’ long Double Arch bridge. You will be riding through some of the prettiest countryside in the South. At the end of the day, we will shuttle the group to a nearby town to explore and enjoy the regional dining options. We will provide all the lodging, transportation and support. Participants are responsible for bikes and cost of meals. There will be one day of travel from Roanoke, VA to Nashville, TN; 8 days of riding, averaging 55 miles per day; and one day of travel home from Natchez, MS.
