    We got this today in the Brass Digest and wanted to share, sounds fun, not sure the links will come through so you may have to hand type

    The Natchez Bicycle Club invites you to participate in this year's Belles on Bikes hosted in Historic Downtown Natchez. This women's only recreational ride will take you out onto the Natchez Trace and through downtown Natchez. Saturday, April 6th this event will start on the bluff of the Mississippi River. This weekend is also the last of the 2013 Spring Pilgrimage which will see several antebellum homes open to the public as well as other events. See the links below for more info.

    We did a brevet on the Natchez (from Nashville down to Tupelo and back) and it was wonderful! Also did a short ride on the section near Jackson. It's absolutely wonderful.
    For 3 days, I get to part of a thousand other journeys.

    This looks like so much fun - how hilly is this area? I would love to do this someday, though it isn't in the cards for THIS year.

    Last spring I rode the Natchez Trace Parkway from Tupelo to Natchez, and the Mississippi River Trail up to Vicksburg over 10 days or so. There are some gentle hills, and near the river there are some bluffs and steep climbs. It's hillier up towards Vicksburg. I was there during the Spring Pilgrimmage but didn't see any indication of Belles on Bikes. Maybe I just missed it. Natchez is a beautiful place. The Parkway is nice to ride in the spring before the RVs come out, but I found the MRT to be more interesting.
