The Great Southern River Ride

Tuesday, August 30 to Wednesday, September 7, 2005
Tuesday, August 29 to Wednesday, September 6, 2006

The Great Southern River Ride will take cyclists on a terrific 8 day tour through the Grand Old South following the Mississippi River from Memphis, Tennessee to New Orleans, Louisiana.

From Memphis you'll cycle out into the rural countryside of the fertile delta farming belt of Mississippi. Watch as we cycle through the fall harvest period with the cotton, rice, sugarcane, and fishing industries in full swing.

Mississippi is also home to the Delta Blues. You are sure to hear the local music as we travel our way to Louisiana. Stops in Vicksburg and Natchez overflow with Civil War history. As we make our final push to New Orleans we'll ride through Baton Rouge and past Louisiana State University. Once in New Orleans be sure to tour the down town areas full of action and history.

This is a terrific ride!
