  2. The Alabama Rambler has aggreed to drive Sag wagon. for any section from Tupelo to th Nashville and can drive you back to your car, if you would like to join me on any of those sections.

    I would like to note a few change to the schedule on day one i wil ride from the terminus to the state park and not ride both directions.

    in stead of camping at ratlif ferr i'll be staying at a motel in Rigland.

    and instead of staying at Tupelo visitor center i'll be in a motel in Tupelo.

    Bike Quest 2005

    The First Anualish Bike Trip

    Natchez To Nashville



    I am planning a 450 mile bicycle tour event cache The tentative start date will be May 20 2005

    The Tour will follow the Natchez Trace Parkway from end to end (Natchez Ms to Nashville Tn).


    The total length is approximately 450 miles.

    It will take about 8-9 days to complete.

    To get credit for the event you can ride all or any portion of the tour or just meet me along the way.

    We will be camping for most of the tour.

    We will ride on average 60 miles per day with 15 min breaks about once an hour.

    You will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the start/end points.


    Day 1 June 19 Sunday Afternoon meet at Natchez State Park. Day ride to terminus and back

    Day 2 June 20 Ride from Natchez State Park to Rocky Springs Campground 59 miles

    Day 3 June 21 Ride from Rocky Springs to Ratliff Ferry 74.4 miles

    Day 4 June 22 Ratliff Ferry to Jeff Busby 70.5 miles

    Day 5 June 23 Jeff Busby to Tupelo Visitor Center 74.2 miles

    Day 6 June 24 Tupelo Visitor Center to Colbert Ferry 62 miles

    Day 7 June 25 Colbert Ferry to Meriwether Lewis 59.3 miles

    Day 8 June 26 Meriwether Lewis to Nashville terminus 57.1 miles


    I'm not sure yet if we will use a sag wagon to carry most of the gear or if we'll carry it on bike.
