As most of you who follow this page know, we had a series of events that caused us to delay the ride from this past fall, until sometime in the spring. We also asked for opinions on a few things to get us rolling, and have taken heed to the thoughts, advice and ideas given.
We have been working hard to not only nail down dates, bringing in more folks to helps us with logistics, and also taking a larger look at the route overall.
Because of that we can announce that we are fairly close to having an official announcement made of dates and the final route, but we wanted to give you a sneak peak at the current planning route. It runs from Memphis, TN to Cleburne, TX, and is about 615 miles long.
For those looking for segments, and/or stages, we've figured that in too (with stages of 75-110 miles), and will let all of that information out when we make the official announcements.
Currently, we are looking at dates for either the beginning of June or end of September. (Your input on this is ALWAYS welcome!)
We are also interested in talking with anyone/company who might want to expand their reach in the bikepacking world, by partnering with us as a sponsor at any level.
Also, PLEASE feel free to share with all of your cycling and bikepacking friends!
