A Year End Epic Ride you don't want to miss- Just because its mid fall doesn’t mean you have to stop exploring by bicycle! We designed this trip specifically for folks who’d like to get one last epic ride in for the year, and the Metal Cowboy himself will be your tour guide extraordinaire!

Starting in Nashville we’ll peddle down one of America’s premier designated cycling routes, the Natchez Trace Parkway. But it won’t be a cake walk! In order to complete all 440+ miles of this trip in 8 days of peddling you’ll have to peddle an average of 55 miles per day (some days will be longer) along rolling terrain.

Natchez Trace Parkway
While riding on this exceptionally scenic parkway we’ll cycle through three states passing historic civil war towns, Water Tupelo/Bald Cypress swamps, civil war era military camps, endless scenic overlooks, Indian burial mounds and the Meriwether Lewis monument. Spend your rest day (in the middle of the trip) hiking, sightseeing or enjoying great southern down home cooking.

Optional Activities: Hiking, Rockhounding, Bird Watching, Scenic Photography, Sightseeing, Shopping, Downhome dining and more.
