I'm trying to map out a route across southern Missouri between Cape Girardeau and Branson for a self-supported multi-day group ride. It was an idea I tossed out to a group of friends to do during a two week plant shut-down later this year. Anyone familiar with the state roads across southern MO? I want to avoid US 60 and US 160 if at all possible. We'll all be on road bikes so want to avoid gravel roads as well. I'm going to check with bike shops in Springfield and Cape to get some suggestions. Thanks for the help.
