If you’ve ever wanted to bike the entire length of the Natchez Trace Parkway, now may be the time.
But this one’s only for the “serious” cyclists!
This 2-day ride starts in Nashville, Tennessee and travels 300K to Tupelo, Mississippi — and back.
And there’s a 40-hour time limit.
Riders on the course must be totally self sufficient as NO support services will be provided. Due to the limited nature of available services on the Natchez Trace Parkway, Controls (i.e. stores) will be located off of the parkway causing riders to briefly exit the course.
For more information, check out the Harpeth Bike Club‘s website. There you will find:
- a route map
- directions to the start
- camping & hotel locations
- food, water and supply locations

We’ve lived in the Nashville area since 2001 — and all 3 of our houses have been situated relatively close to the Natchez Trace Parkway. To me, the ‘The Trace’ is a hidden gem of Nashville — a place to go when you want to get away from it all and be one with nature. I’ve hiked it, biked it, motorcycled it, walked it with my dogs, and driven my car on The Natchez Trace Parkway more times than I can count! This is where I share some of my favorite things to do along the Natchez Trace Parkway — which runs 444 miles from Nashville Tennessee to Natchez Mississippi and through parts of Alabama. When I’m not enjoying the beautiful outdoors along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you’ll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
