Written Directions

If you are near the Sedalia, MO area and are looking for a short, fun ride, you should consider this route. You can begin in Sedalia on Highway 50. Leave town on Hwy 50 heading east. Stay on 50 until you come to Hwy 135 South. Turn south onto Hwy 135 and travel down until you reach the intersection of Hwy M. This intersection is approximately 7 miles north of the intersection of Hwy 52 and 135. Turn right onto Hwy M and travel back up to Sedalia. This route is very enjoyable. Both highways are paved well and offer nice scenery and challenging curves. It is one of my favorite local routes. If you are looking for a short trip, check this one out. I don't get in a hurry and can stretch it out to about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Have a safe trip.

Scenery

This route will take you through some hills and sweeping curves as you travel through some of Missouri's farm land. You'll leave Sedalia, heading east on Hwy 50. The route will change direction when you intersect Hwy 135 South. Hwy 135 offers good pavement, challenging curves and pleasant scenery. Along this highway you will find lots of cattle as well as other wildlife, to include deer and turkey. Be sure to watch out for the groundhog that resides by the bridge crossing over Flat Creek. When you reach the intersection of Hwy 135 and Hwy M, turn right and head back towards Sedalia. Hwy M has it's share of curves as well and can be challenging to the novice rider. There are a few straight sections that will allow you to roll back on the throttle a bit, but do watch for the curves. Watch for deer all along this route. This trip can be very enjoyable if you are looking for a quick ride, close to home. I run this route on my '95 VT1100, taking my time and stretching it out to about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Be safe and enjoy the ride.

Drive Enjoyment

This route has a lot of challenging curves, abundant with hills as well as a few straight sections that will allow you to roll back on the throttle. The pavement is good quality, being smooth and without potholes or other dangers. Be aware of possible gravel or dirt that may be present around the entrances to farming areas such as fields and pastures. One time I did encounter some mud clumps that were deposited in the roadway from one of the local farming tractors. Pay attention to the speed recommendations for the curves and don't be afraid to run the speed limit between them.

Tourism Opportunities

There are lots of options in Sedalia if you are looking for some fuel for you or the bike. I recommend Goodies Steakburgers or El Tapatio. After you leave Sedalia, there won't be anywhere to stop and fuel until you get back to Sedalia. The only option would be to take Hwy 135 south, past Hwy M to Hwy 52. Hwy 52 east will take you to Stover, however I am not real familiar with the amenities there.

This is a great little ride. My wife and I ride it all the time. In the mid to late spring it's great when you come threw the country side and you can smell all the flowers. In the summer we leave Sedalia at 7 pm and we get to watch the whole sun set.

Hwy M is a bit rough and narrow is some spots. but Hwy 135 is pretty clean. Just don't drag knee or cross the middle line and you should be fine.
