Natchez Trace & The Antebellum South Bike Tour

Mississippi: Natchez Trace & The Antebellum South Bike Tour

Summer is here so get ready for some fun in the sun bike riding down the Natchez Trace.

Our Natchez Trace tour offers the best of the antebellum South traditional hospitality, early American history, and distinctive architecture. Magnolia trees and moss-draped oaks add a charming flavor to quiet country roads. Classic Adventures enjoys the distinction of being the original: the first bicycle touring company to offer the Natchez Trace tour. In its 27th consecutive season, this tour offers incredible, unmatched value, in terms of lodging, dining, itinerary, experienced guides, and customer service.  Much of our cycling winds along the Natchez Trace Parkway, a gentle, park-like route which abounds in cultural and scenic delights. Enjoy a short walk on the old sunken trace, the footpath where travelers journeyed north toward home. Visit Mount Locust, an old tavern/inn that provided simple lodging for weary Trace travelers in the 1800’s. Off the parkway, gentle country roads include stops at Windsor Ruins, Rocky Springs, and the mysterious Emerald Mound
