+Beast of Traal Posted February 10, 2005 Share Posted February 10, 2005 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 May 20 Friday night meet at Natchez State Park. Day 2 May 21 Ride from Natchez terminus to Rocky Springs Campground 59 miles Day 3 May 22 Ride from Rocky Springs to Ratliff Ferry 74.4 miles Day 4 May 23 Ratliff Ferry to Jeff Busby 70.5 miles Day 5 May 24 Jeff Busby to Tupelo Visitor Center 74.2 miles Day 6 May 25 Tupelo Visitor Center to Colbert Ferry 62 miles Day 7 May 26 Colbert Ferry to Meriwether Lewis 59.3 miles Day 8 May 27 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.
