Eminence, Missouri

Day 16

Miles Today: 67

Total Miles Completed: 1,219

Approximate Miles Remaining: 2,181

Kyle rode 67 miles today, setting up camp in Eminence, Missouri. Eminence is the canoe capital of the world and accordingly Kyle spent much of the day riding along the Ozark National Scenic Riverways (see picture), with his current campsite on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest. At this point, Kyle is approximately 75 miles southwest of St. Louis and 75 miles north of the Arkansas border (see link below). Kyle said that the ride today was great although fairly roundabout as well as very hilly, as he experienced increasingly steep terrain as he progressed. He was in his lowest gear several times, slowing grinding up the grade then attempting to tame the extreme load during the downhill portions.
