The Mighty Mississippi has been on my ride list for some time. So, now that the spring floods have subsided, I'm going to scratch the Mighty Mississippi off my ride list. I'll be going for the GOLD of course.
- Mighty Mississippi - Time limit 36 hours
- Mighty Mississippi GOLD - Time limit 24 hours

I am planning on a 4am Tuesday, 7/16 departure from Lake Itasca to take full advantage of my circadian rhythm. Garmin Basecamp calculates 1,520 miles and riding time of about 22 hours along the route I selected. With any luck on traffic and weather I should be able to shave an hour or so off that and arrive a little after midnight.
