Saturday saw bright blue skies and temps in the high 40s. Arnold, McCracken and I headed out into a light wind, had a nice retunr from Nisqually John’s Landing until about 3 miles from town when the East wind we had expected popped up to remind us how lucky we had been.
We blew it off and had beers at Riverport Brewery.
Cold weather makes a tour in the Mississippi Trail look pretty inviting this time of year.–Corrie
When cyclists think of crossing the country on bike, perhaps one of the major east-west touring routes comes to mind first. However, it would be a big mistake to overlook the Mississippi River trail, a marked bike route that follows the historic river on its 2,000 mile course from Itasca State Park, where the rivers headwaters are found in northern Minnesota all the way down to where the Mississipi enters the Gulf of Mexico at the southernmost point in Louisiana. To help guide fellow travelers on their own version of this epic trip, author and cyclist Bob Robinson has compiled the Bicycling Guide to the Mississippi River Trail.
