This established bicycle route connects a number of historic sites, points of interest, recreational areas and natural attractions as it stretches approximately 260 miles across northern Missouri.
The route follows county and state roadways that generally parallel Route 36, with some stretches on Route 36 itself. There is generally no shoulder on the secondary roads, but they have very little vehicular traffic. There are rolling hills throughout the route, but no particularly steep or extended climbs.
Route 36 across northern Missouri is known as “The Way of American Genius” because of towns along the way that were home to people such as Mark Twain, Walt Disney, Gen. John “Black Jack” Pershing, J. C. Penney, Jesse James, and others; plus the Pony Express.
