The Mississippi River is the water highway of America's heartland. It's seldom more scenic along a 23-mile stretch called Lake Pepin. A circuit of Lake Pepin is an exhilarating mix of flat, rolling and steep riding, punctuated by beautiful overviews, historic sites, and quaint small towns. Though no longer part of an organized bike tour, the route is too good to miss. Visitors from the early French to Henry David Thoreau agreed that Lake Pepin is the most scenic stretch of the Mississippi.
