Heartlands Regional Bike Tour
Heartlands Regional Tour – Desert, Cows, and Corn
Albuquerque, NM to Champaign, IL
Approximately 1370 miles
17 riding days/2 rest days/20 nights
Sixteen days of diverse landscape with one rest day in the middle can satisfy the cyclist who wants a taste of it all, but can’t manage the time (this year) to ride the entire Sea to Sea tour. This regional tour travels through amazing vistas on the way to Tucumcari, NM and then past more cows than you can imagine on the way to Dalhart, TX. Visit Dorothy’s house in Liberal, KS, where the corn is growing and bright green – in shocking contrast to the desert. In McPherson, visit the Opera House and County Courthouse, both on the National Register of Historic Places. Next, ride to Emporia, home of UNBOUND Gravel in the Flint Hills of Kansas. After a well-earned rest day, head east again, crossing the Mississippi River on the way to Champaign, IL. Passing small town cafes on Historic Rt. 66, this tour is ideal as you discover the beauty of the United States.
