Hey David!
I haven't really put much thought into the next couple of weekends

Oopsie! So, I do need to fix my bike first tho and then I'll go from there! Coal Creek is a cool place, it might be warmer there that weekend rather than in the mountains of North Georgia on Hwy 60 in Suches.
I think both of those would be long day rides either way you went. Going to Suches is much more scenic tho, IMO

Thanks for coming out Tim! It was a pretty awesome time at Brewhaus, we played Trivia and got a few questions right! The most I've ever gotten correct! Only b/c Brent & Tim have a higher education than I do

Anyone riding this weekend?

I just got in from a long ride last night, or I'd love to have gone. Maybe soon.

Blat = ride.
Took the back roads to Spring City, then climbed up on the Cumberland Plateau before exploring some dirt roads which took me to the top of Hinch mountain, where there is an excellent tag spot (for those of you who play that game).


This graveyard was located off a side road on the side of the mountain. Most of the stones are from the 19th century. No way a modern hearse make it back in there. This would probably make a decent tag spot too, as its not listed on the gps.

I saw a Transalp parked off Summer Cit road and talked to the rider for awhile. He was able to fill me in on some the area. Thanks for the road tips Larry. It turned out to be a nice 196 mile blat. Unfortunately, the tires still have some tread left.

Awww! Tim I wish I had looked earlier and saw your post!


Just a heads up, rumor has it some peeps are wanting to get a camping trip together next weekend November 16 Friday thru Sunday (?) for Tellico.

Anyone interested?



Monte! I like your photos! I woulda loved to have seen that beast of the tiger in action there! I hear it does some gnarly stuff. Glad you got out this Sunday. I just ordered a Michelin for my DR and hopefully it'll be here in the next couple of days. Tomorrow I order the clutch assembly from Garry's

Hey folks,
I'm going on a street ride tomorrow, Saturday. If anybody's interested, I'm leaving from the Bluegrass Grille tomorrow morning, 8:30ish. Moderate to quick pace, hopefully an all-dayer. Route and return times not yet finalized. Maybe I'll see somebody there.

Don't be so glum. This might be the last nice day of the year to wear shorts. Leaving for the Ocoee white water center MTB trails in a bit.
