Natchez Trace late in October
A friend and I are planning to ride the Natchez Trace from Nashville to Natchez late in October. Our plan is to camp in the bicycle campsites mostly. I am riding a LHT and my friend is riding a Surly cross that is converted to a touring bike.
I rode an out and back century a couple years ago just North of Jackson, MS. That is the only time I have been on this road. I am looking for any tips. We plan some fairly high mileage so we can complete the ride in a week or less. Working for a living is a real pain.
Anything to avoid or other problems to watch for would be welcome knowledge.
