    The Bagels and Bluegrass Ride across Southwest Tennessee is a bicycle ride featuring Southwest
    Tennessee's State Parks and scenic roads. The ride begins with a breakfast of bagels at the staging
    area located at Jackson State Community College, on the corner of State Highway 412 (Parkway) and US
    70 in Jackson, Tennessee. Featured stops include Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Area, the
    largest Middle Woodland Indian Complex in the Southeast, consisting of at least 15 earthen mounds;
    and Chickasaw State Park, near Henderson, Tennessee. End the day with dinner and bluegrass
