Long Distance bike riding throughout Louisiana can be a fun suggestion and rather tough. Depending on what time of the year you go there can likewise be a lot of pesky Mosquitoes too. One route is to take Shreveport to Vicksburg, Mississippi and also as a crow flies it has to do with 175 miles, yet remember we are riding a bike. The I-20 has to do with 178 miles and a line of sight, yet remember we are not a cars and truck and cannot ride on the Freeway, nor would certainly you wish to. One more route would certainly be to Orange, TX at the boundary to Waveland, Mississippi which is about 265 plus the additional 15 miles into Mississippi on Hwy 90 or you could pick a pick-up like the huge rest stop and vistor’s center simply over the boundary.
For all functional planned 265 is a lot of miles and also could easily take you into nightfall when the pests are attacking at their worst, so lets re-look at the Northern Route to go across the state and think about the 178 plus trip shall we. We will certainly start out at one the River Casino or I in fact advise the Science Port Discovery Center down the street from the Expo Center and then go North one mile to Texas Ave, which is likewise the 79/80 Hwy. This road is well kept and will certainly take us right out of Shreveport securely and throughout the 220 Loop without occurrence about 5 miles and also we are warmed up for our ride and also out of community riding with lovely Louisiana.
After that it is a simple flight to Minden, LA regarding an additional 21.5 miles approximately and then Hwy 79 cuts off and mosts likely to Claireborne, LA one more great ride to an area with a great deal of nice individuals, but we will certainly continue to be on the Hwy 80 at this moment. After about 8 miles the Highway dips under I-20 for concerning one more 28 miles into Ruston, LA. This complete 61 miles for a great breaking point and afterwards we continue on Hwy 80 to Monroe, LA for 20 miles and then staying on Hwy 80 we travel once again out of community to Tallulah driving via the communities of Rayville, Holy Ridge, Dunn and Delhi. This is about 60 miles. Next we take a quick breather and after that a great 20-mile ride into Mississippi goes across over the Mississippi River Bridge right into Vicksburg. Superb job!
