The MRT is a bicycle route that follows the Mississippi River from the beginning at Itasca State Park to New Orleans. A guy & I rode the first half last Fall and plan on doing the second half this Fall.
My son & I prerode a portion, on our cycles, from Iowa to St. Louis last Summer. It was a lot easier on the motorized bikes but is something I always wanted to do on the pedal variety.
If you are ever looking for interesting motorcycle routes the MRT would be a fun ride. It follows pretty close to the river and avoids major roads.
