The Great Central River Ride takes cyclists on a 6 day, 430 mile adventure from St. Charles, Missouri to Memphis Tennessee. The ride departs eastern St. Louis County and travels south to meet the river. A Missouri River bike path gives you a first hand look at the mighty Missouri River.

After we cross, you'll wind along the more rural roads and back to the Mississippi. Past Ste. Genevieve the riding is fantastic as we cycle through the flat farm country of Missouri to Cape Girardeau.

The next day you'll touch 4 states; Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and into Tennessee, rolling through the countryside to finish in Union City. From here the road continues through the countryside as we cross Tennessee and head toward our final destination, Memphis. Take at least one day off and see all the sights that Memphis has to offer.

This is a great ride!
