Mississippi River N to S, help and suggestions
« on: October 28, 2020, 10:36:32 pm »
I am doing a solo, unsupported charity ride of the Mississippi River, North to South.  I am interested in talking with others that have done this trip ~ specifically regarding total path length as well as tips, tricks or suggestions.

If you prefer, please email me at pjseemann@gmail.com

Thank you!

Welcome to the ACA Forums. If you have not done so, check out the http://www.mississippirivertrail.org/ .  They have a guidebook that gives a route from the headwaters to New Orleans I think.  You might be able to buy a used guidebook on eBay.

Of course, you could follow ACA's routes but they only follow the river part of the way; mainly up north.

Hope you have an enjoyable trip!

Tailwinds, John

Check out this book by Bob Robinson.  Bicycling Guide to the Mississippi River Trail  A complete Route Guide along the Mississippi River  It seems to follow the river fairly closely and gives info on camping and lodging.
