Where did you ride in MS today?

Took a ride this morning and wanted to post up some of the pics. Figured it would be a good thread to get others to post up pics from their rides too.

So show where you rode today (or recently) so others in MS who have limited time to ride can see what all is in their backyard.

So here we go, one pic or 20, makes no matter.

Just give as much info about the pics as you want. If it is really interesting, tell us where it is.

Here we go...

Old Hwy 49 north of the Big Black river.








Trestle rd




Mississippi curves??




Tree tunnels




Johnson rd, I think




Oil City area
Go figure

It was a great ride this morning, left b4 7 and back b4 noon, covered about 200 miles. That is all.

Next?

It's about a mile and a half north of that bridge on old Hwy 49. Robinette rd goes east at the intersection and Trestle goes west. I think you posted pics of that bridge on Old 49 a few months back and that's how I knew about where it was. There are some great roads out that way, paved and unpaved.

I ran out of time (had to be back by 12) but there were several other roads in that general area worth riding.

Both Friday night and Saturday night I went for a late afternoon, sunset cruise. Friday night I went to the Madison side of the Rez and cruised over to Renaissance and up and down Highland Colony Parkway. (It was kind of weird riding on the brick streets around Reconnaissance. I was idling through the main area in front of the Apple store, in second gear I think, and a 350lb woman aimlessly grazed right out in front of me. Locked up the back tire and stopped. She looked at me with the deer-in-the-headlights look, then glared and waddled on across.

Saturday night, I went scouting some local places I might stick a future tag. I rode down Flowood drive and was trying to avoid major highways and interstates. I headed over to Old 49 and went through the little aquaduct thing that goes under 80 and the train tracks. As I topped the hill, I saw a car stopped in the bottom. i was planning to stop and get a picture, but this other visitor spooked me a bit since I didn't know what he was doing. he slammed his door and sped past me. As I coasted to the botto of the aquaduct to cross the few inches of water in teh bottom. I saw waht he was doing. There I saw the remains of a large snake tht was black with bright orange rings around it. Probably 4 or 5 feet long and several inches around. Needless to say, I didn't stop to see if any of his relatives were down in the hole with me!

I ended up running all the way out to a friends house out west of Florence then returning up 469 and by the Central MS correctional place and on back home. Got to deal with my first tailgator on 469. it is a somewhat winding area and this teenager in his F150 decided it would be fun to ride right off my rear tire. I tapped my brakes and slowly slowed down and moved to outside of lane and as soon as we hit a straightaway, he flew past me.

Sorry I didn't get any pictures of any of this. I was too busy enjoying the ride!!

In the meantime, here's a pic from Sardis Lake a few months ago when it was drained:

I would like to see the pics. We recently did a little street riding in the area and would love to see more of what's available.

Old Hwy 49 is rather vague. South Ms, Central MS. North MS ?

Bet it was that technical terminology that threw him off... " and went through the little aquaduct thing" He didn't make it to the Hwy 80 part.

I'll try to upload. You e-mailed me the route south of Batesville. Thanks.

All around Sardis there are lots of fun short little roads that go nowhere in particular.

Just a few that stick out (keep in mind that most of these are SHORT) --
Lafayette County CR-323 north of Taylor (and Taylor Grocery and Emileigh's Table )

Blackjack Road from Hwy 6 to the Sardis dam.

Plenty of stuff just north of Lake Enid (all short)

Campground Road on either side of Hwy 6 east of Hwy 7 to CR-215 to CR-204 in Lafayette County. CR-202 has some wide open sweepers.

Bunch of little twisty roads just east and northeast of Cornersville, MS. I haven't had time to explore Holly Spring National Forest north of Hwy 78.

Finally got the one or two photos loaded up from last weekend's ride.

CR-1011 in Lafayette County dead ends at Sardis Lake. It actually turns into double track (with a bunch of side trails I need to explore) about 2 miles before you reach the lake.



To get across the east half of Lafayette County you can Hwy 7 to Hwy 30 to CR-225 to CR-2066. 225 turns into gravel and 2066 is all gravel. That takes you almost to the Pontotoc county line.

In north Mississippi, I've had good luck picking a random location with a Geohashing web page I have since lost and letting my Garmin route there with Avoid large roads, Don't Avoid medium roads or gravel roads, and Prefer small roads.
