Ride the Fault Line is a 7-day supported bike tour through the Mississippi Valley flatlands of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Cross the Mississippi River on an authentic riverboat ferry. 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. 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 Wildlife Refuge.
The ride features completely FLAT terrain, with alternate routes featuring HILLS for those who simply MUST have "elevation gains"! The tour starts and ends in Sikeston, Missouri, and features enthusiastic host communities anxious to extend their "SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY". There are optional meal plans and a deluxe supplemental shower trailer with fully private individual stalls and LOTS of HOT water.
Registration is limited to 500 cyclists.
