+Beast of Traal Posted July 6, 2004 Share Posted July 6, 2004 I am planning a 450 mile bicycle tour event cache for some time this fall (tentative start last Friday in October) 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 Friday night meet at Natchez State Park. Day 2 Ride from Natchez State Park to Rocky Springs Campground 49 miles Day 3 Ride from Rocky Springs to Ratliff Ferry 74.4 miles (Note the Trace through Jackson is not complete we will have to detour through the streets of Jackson the NPS has a map of the best way through) Day 4 Ratliff Ferry to Jeff Busby 70.5 miles Day 5 Jeff Busby to Tupelo Visitor Center 74.2 miles Day 6 Tupelo Visitor Center to Colbert Ferry 62 miles Day 7 Colbert Ferry to Meriwether Lewis 59.3 miles Day 8 Meriwether Lewis to Nashville terminus 57.1 miles I'm not sure yet if we will use a sage wagon to carry most of the gear or if we'll carry it on bike. If you are interested in participating or have suggestions post a reply to this thread. When more of the details are ironed out I will post an event on the cache page.
