I don't know much about the UGRR route, but since I live in southeast AL, I would like to join a small group riding the southern end of it for a week or so if I happen to be free when you come to Alabama. Too  bad the route does not go far enough east to see Tuskeegee Institute, the G.W. Carver Museum and the Tuskeegee Airmen museum. I don't think it goes through Selma and over the Edmund Pettus bridge either? These sites are important in African American history of 20th century instead of slavery period but are well worth a detour if you are interested
