Did you know that there are a few existing very long trails one can ride?  Yeppur! One can’t  possibly ride any of them in a single day. Some would take several weeks or even a few months to ride for the average rider. Unfortunately most of these long trails are not 100 % trails as they incorporate some roads to join sections of trails together. I probably won’t cover all of these long trails but here are some of them . From what I have read it is ill advised to attempt some of these rides on a trike as parts would be too difficult and challenging.

Mississippi River Trail

Follows along the Mississippi River from its headwaters in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. … some 2200 miles.

The Great American Rail Trail

An east to west route from the nation’s capital  to the west coast (Washington State). I have an ARTICLE about this trail.

Ya know, it really doesn’t make much since for me to sit here and type out these trails when others have already done so.  HERE is a list of long trails in the U.S.

The problem is all too many of these trails are incomplete. Only small limited sections have been built thus far. One could find themselves tackling something they are not prepared for nor equipped for. A bicycle would be much more suited for the journey than a trike would be. In some places they are working on trail building to complete the plan while other areas nothing is happening.

It is not likely that I will ever have the opportunity to ride any of these trails, but perhaps you will. If you do I hope you enjoy it and stay safe.


A FREE GIFT awaits you!
