There are four parts to the Ozarks; five if you count Magazine Mountain, sliced off from the rest of the Ozarks by the Arkansas River, where the Ozarks and Ouachitas collided eons ago.

The rugged portions of the Ozarks are found in the Boston Mountains and the southern parts of the two plateaus. The upper portion of the Springfield and Salem Plateaus are rolling and more rounded. The St. Francois Mountains are somewhere in-between with similar riding as found in the Boston Mountains.

Take a good look at this site. You'll find maps, stories about rides (with more coming all the time), and lots of "Things to Do" and places to stay and dine. We've spent much of our time this year beefing up the site. Explore it... you'll be glad you did.

A Word From David Bell

Over the years I've had the opportunity to write and photograph for Ride Texas, Rider, the AMA's American Motorcyclist, RoadBike and other national motorcycle and general interest publications. My goal is to give you an insider's look at the best areas to explore while you are riding across the Ozarks.

What a privilege it has been to travel across the country... take great rides, meet interesting people, and see what this great country has to offer.

I love riding the Rockies.

I love riding the Appalachians.

But my heart and life are rooted in the Ozarks, one of the top riding areas in the country. Many of my stories in magazines have been about exploring this great motorcycling area. I enjoy sharing about this riders' playground. There are as many miles of fantastic roads in the Ozarks as in any other of the nation's other top riding destinations.

I hope this website helps you plan your trip. Besides the content found here the advertisers and sponsors in the pages of both the website and the print edition are rider-friendly and partners in helping you have an excellent time as you... Cruise the Ozarks!
