Heartland Tour Itinerary

St. Joseph to Indianapolis, IN

Monday, July 4 to Monday, July 11, 2005
Monday, July 3 to Monday, July 10, 2006

We'll begin the roll through Missouri. This state will really get your attention with its rural beauty, Amish charm and extreme roller coaster terrain. After we roll down into the Mississippi River Valley, cross the Mississippi River, the east is at hand. We'll stretch out our legs again and hit the town Abe Lincoln made famous, Springfield, Illinois. The terrain settles down and the wheat fields turn to corn as we spin across Illinois and into Indiana. The farmland gives way to big city as we arrive in Indianapolis. You'll get a chance to see Indianapolis Motor Speedway, take a lap on the Major Taylor Velodrome and see the sights.
