Trying to plan a decent 3-4 day bike trip

Because of my job I can't take a whole lot of time off, so 3-4 days is the max any ideas?

I would, but since I own my own business my partner would have to cover.

best advice as of yet. I'm sure three sisters is nice. But Eureka Springs is simply awesome and the roads are just as good as the gap but only closer and less crowded. Its a 7 - 8 hr ride from houston if you go through OK.

Umm, its 600 miles from Houston to E.S. and you can make it in eight hours?

Eureka Springs is far and away better riding than anything in Texas.

Arkansas FTW...been there many a time and lots of fun. I have been guilty of doing 500+miles a day 3 days in a row out there. Even had to find a shop to install a new tire. AR will eat up some tires quick if you do it right.

there are plenty of good roads to ride around Hot Springs but just not as good and with as little traffic as there is around Eureka Springs.

You can have fun around Hot Springs.

To this date nothing has beat hwy 1 n. of San Francisco. Traffic light if you go during the week and the roads are nothing less than spectacular. I would like to try Eureka Springs one day. How is the popo there? Me and cops just don't get along to well when I am on a bike.

Easy.. probably less than that

From NW Houston to Texarkana 5-5.5 hrs, Memphis is 9.5

NVM, was thinking of Hot Springs; Eureka is a bit farther north
