    This one starts in Cape or anyplace you want to along the loop. Includes Cape Girardeau, Viburnum (Miners Motel stay), Lake of the Ozarks, Jeff City, Columbia, Hermann, Sullivan then splits. Blue route from Sullivan takes you to a short dirt road with 30 foot high bluffs on both sides (like riding in a canyon). There is everything a man would want. Over 150 waypoints. Many things to see, do and eat. It's a four day, 800 miles+ route that I have ridden twice. So everything works. With some minor glitches depending on how high the water is. Mainly backroad blacktop. Some gravel road (20% maybe).

    I have'nt looked at the tracks yet, but I will.

    What do you estimate the percentage of pavement vs gravel roads to be??

    Thanks

    This one is mainly paved roads. Probably 80% paved, maybe a little more. But most of the black top is just that. Rural curvy road blacktop. Some exceptions there too. Sometimes when your going from point A to point B you just can't find all curvy roads. In southern Missouri, ya' probably could find a way on just gravel. Or mostly.

    This is approx. 800 miles long. On gravel that would be a long four day trip.
