A refreshing break on the Gypsy Tour

Riders will be meeting up in Arkansas on July 15, and then heading north to the BMW MOA rally in Sedalia, MO on July 18.

Some of the routes we're providing feature Peel Ferry across Bull Shoals lake.

Peel Ferry is the last public ferryboat operating in the state of Arkansas. It transports vehicles and passengers across a section of Bull Shoals Lake. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

No, you don't need to dress like a pirate to ride the ferry...

One of the "hard" dayrides.

About 60 miles from the BMW MOA rally, Cooper Creek offers an off-roading opportunity for riders heading to, or riding out from Sedalia. You can find out more specifics, including camping info, at the Adventure Summits FB page.



Here are are few shots of where we'll be riding. The place also gets some ATV use, so many of the trails are wide and easy to ride. However, there were more than a few hero loops....

Here's the other option for a "hard" day ride...

... or a great place to stop on your way to the BMW MOA rally to the east.

Fingerlakes State Park OHV area.

Low fees, looks to be some really nice camping.

Why thanks!

fwiw, even if you're not going to the rally, you can still ride, eat, drink and party for three days in Arkansas for just a hundred bux.

And... the Ozark Boyz have been busy laying out easy (green), medium (blue) and hard (red) dayrides....

The area has riding for all levels along with some beautiful scenery.





There can be mud. This was on top of Possum Creek Road.

Also if you like history only 60 miles away is Fort Smith (think of the movie "True Grit")



And a number of battlefields from the War of Northern Aggression.

Battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas



Pea Ridge Battlefield

Swinging bridges abound...

For riders coming from the east/southeast, there is a great Adventure Detour that swings by a number of cool old swinging bridges in Missouri.


Thanks Troy, for sharing the pictures.

I took a weekend trip to central Missouri and Sedalia to do a little exploring. Here are a few pictures of the area:

This road is south of Lake Of the Ozarks.



This is what they were viewing, Lake Niangua:

Haw Creek a few miles from Sedalia:

I'm also a noob in the dirt. Looking forward to learning some basic dirt skills. This looks like a great way to get my feet wet and my bike dirty.
