Dust off your bikes and air up your tires it’s Springtime in the Delta. Tunica has two bicycle trails to get you outside and enjoying this weather. The first of the 2 trails is a 35 mile trail that begins at Walls in DeSoto County and follows Old U.S. 61 — the Great River Road Scenic Byway– passing through Lake Cormorant in DeSoto county west to the Tunica County Line. Stopovers include the future Bass Landing Park, DeSoto County’s only Mississippi River access. The second trail is a 13 mile loop that begins in historic downtown Tunica and leads you through the Delta to Mhoon Landing on the Mississippi River and back to town.
There will be a ride hosted by Tunica Main Street before the start of the Rivergate festival Saturday, April 18 at 8:00 a.m. The 13 mile ride will begin in downtown Rivergate Park and go West to Fox Island Road. There is a $20 registration fee for this ride. Please join us on a journey through the beauty of the Delta.The vast expanse of the flat terrain lends itself perfectly to a bike trail intended for riders of all abilities while still offering seasoned athletes a scenic experience for speed and interval training.
