Dual Sport Ride in Southern Indiana

Don't mean to barge in guys but thought you might be interested in the Loose Nut Dual Sport ride we are starting this year. It starts just north of Evansville IN. That's not too far from St Louis. Should be fun. Here's the link:

Not too expensive (just travel costs) Hope you guys can make it

Ok, not a lot of chatter or riding going on on this thread so.anybody that doesnt work a regular job want to ride Wednesday? Its going to be the best day of the week and I'm going.
I have a few rides in mind. 1) If it dont rain any more before then, I have a nice dual sport ride from Hecker to Chester and back. 2) Id like to ride the levee on the Missouri side from south of Chester to ??? Never done that but it should be interesting this time of year. All gravel. Illinois wont let you ride them on this side. 3) Twistys to Bixby or another small town eatery. 4) To Giant City to eat and look at leaves. 5) Anything to anywhere. Just ride.

Sieg,

You may want to post your stuff on the Mo. ADV Riders thread, this one's not moving at all and should be probably deleted.

The only levee is along the Missouri bottom. Otherwise it is all bluff. Only 4 or 5 places to get down to the river on the on the Missouri side.

I just purchased a 990 ADV so I will be doing a few hours of riding on Wedneday. I have to be back home to Pville by 230 tho.

Thanks for the heads up, I've rode it north never south. Hoped it was a little more levee than bluff to 'cape. No good stuff following the river north of Ste. Gen. Little more rural going south but never done it.

Missouri doesn't need a levy, they have hills. Unlike Illinois flat land.

So. Illinois Levees

themastermike,

Me and various ADV riders run levees all the time between Columbia and Praire DuRocher. There is also a ferry at Modoc which is about 4 miles from DuRocher that takes you over to St. Genevieve. I think that you can run about 30-40 miles of gravel levees from
Columbia to DuRocher and then plenty more going south past Chester. There may be signs saying "agricultural use only", but even a large group can flash through.

I have ridden every mile I can on the ill side levees from Columbia to Cairo. On the Mo side I have hugged the river from Chester to crossing back over at Cairo. River obsession. Oh well. Worse things to do.
