Day 33, Houston, Missouri

43 miles, 1,359 total miles

A wonderful day!  After a stop at Alley Spring (click for more views), we had rolling hills and a helping tailwind.

Alley Spring, most photographed spot in Missouri

Millions of gallons of clear water gush from the spring each day

Perfect riding today. Beautiful views.

  1. Absolutely amazing. You rode through my hometown as I grew up in Summersville, lived in Houston after graduating high school and now live in Springfield, MO. I remember, as a kid, seeing cyclists coming through town and wondering where they were from and where they were going. Really enjoy reading about your trip and all the beautiful pictures. Good Luck on the rest of your journey. Safe biking 🙂
