The Tour of the Mississippi River Valley this year is June 9-10. I've been thinking about doing this ride for several years now - probably not brave enough to do the virtual back to back centuries. Anyone else done this ride? It does seem like it is plagued by bad weather on a regular basis.
I'm on their email list (I would recommend it). I've had scheduling conflicts making me unable to the do the Miss. River ride the last two years, but it looks like this year they are not offering it. I've done their tri-state ride a few times. That would be just the type of ride I am looking for.
Bikes: 12 colnago clx3.0, 12 Bianchi Oltre VDCM, 13 Bianchi Cavaria,12 Bianchi infinito, couple vintage Bianchi's and a 1980 alan super record

This was my first century and I did the back to back rides after four weeks of cycling. The first day or 106 miles is a nice long day with decent scenery and some great hills. The second day's ride is awesome for the first 40 miles, winding roads through heavily wooded areas with lots of up and downhill riding after that it is flat and boring typical midwest flatlands. If I ever do the ride again I'll do the first full day and just the first 40 miles.
