Tour of the Ozarks
of the Ozarks, coming up September 16th, 2006, in Rolla, is one of the Missouri "Advocacy Rides"--rides that donate a small portion of their proceeds back to support bicycle advocacy in Missouri.

I've ridden a portion of the route and it is a very beautiful area--well worth the trip.

From the Tour of the Ozarks web site:
A bicycle excursion to benefit the Diabetes Education Fund (DEF). 12, 25, 50, and 100 mile routes in the Missouri Ozarks including old Route 66, the Mark Twain National Forest, and some of the quietest, most scenic roads in Missouri. The two shorter routes are suitable for any bicyclist, while the two longer routes are challenging, scenic and very rewarding. Fully supported with food, drinks, helpful volunteers, and support vehicles.
