Anyone Interested In Group Rides?

Over the course of working on the Mississippi River Trail ground truthing project and the Great Bike Trails portion of RideTHISbike.com, a number of riders have expressed interest in riding with others. Specifically, there seems to be a fair amount of interest in weekend group events that would combine an over night at a hotel, b&b or camping in a state park.

As someone that has participated in a variety of group and solo destination cycling tours, I'd like to hear from other cyclists that would be interested in spending a weekend exploring a world class cycling route. Given that there is sufficient interest in tours like these, I'd be happy to devote a section of RideTHISbike.com to promoting and reporting on such tours.

If you're interested in a destination cycling tour, let me know.

Mississippi River Trail Ground Truthing Update

So far, volunteers have lined up to ground truth all but 50 miles of the Mississippi River Trail (MRT) in Tennessee; however, I'm still encouraging anyone that would like to participate to do so. Even if other volunteers have agreed to ground truth the segment that you would like to ride, the more comments received per segment, the better.

By the way, if you're looking for a riding partner, call me & I'll see if others that are looking to ride the same segment might be interested in some company on their rides too.

Best wishes,
