Ride the Fault Line is a 7-day supported bike tour through the Mississippi Valley floodplain of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Experience the history of the Civil War and the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812. Visit the home/studio of famed literary icon Ernest Hemingway. Cross the Mississippi River on an authentic riverboat ferry. See the boyhood home of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and author of "Blue Suede Shoes", Carl Perkins. Watch bald eagles at the Reelfoot Lake National Wildlife Refuge.
The tour features mostly flat terrain, with "hammerhead" options on some days for those wanting more mileage or hills. The loop tour starts/ends in Sikeston, MO (no need for bus trips or boxing your bike!) and features enthusiastic host communities anxious to extend their "SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY". Entertainment is featured most nights and there's a deluxe shower trailer with private individual stalls and LOTS of HOT water. Outdoor tent camping, indoor floor sleeping or rent a motel room from our approved list. 10 meals are included in your fee; discounts for groups or riders over 65.
Registration is limited to 500 cyclists.
