About the author:
Bob Robinson has been an avid cyclist for over 30 years. During this period he has raced both road and mountain bicycles, organized races for both road and mountain bicycles, built numerous mountain bicycle trails, served as cycling club president, organized bicycle tours, and worked as a committee member for the National Trails Symposium. He strongly believes in actively supporting interests that he participates in.
After preparing the original version of the MRT guidebook, researching the second edition, and just touring for the fun of it, Bob has ridden the entire route on one occasion and most sections on several occasions. When asked which section of the route is his favorite his response is always "Whatever section I am currently riding."
Bob currently lives in Fort Smith, Arkansas, within a short distance to the Ozark Mountains and the Ouachita Mountains. He is an active member of the Ozark Highlands Trail Association and the Friends of the Ouachita Trail organization.
Bob looks forward to meeting cyclists, and sharing stories with them around the campfire during future rides along the Mississippi River Trail, as well as while riding on other tours.
