It's great riding with or without leaves on the trees...
Great, another damn yankee moving down...just kidding! I'm an ex-New Yorker myself (Long Island). From northern Georgia up, the Appalachian mountains are home to some of the finest riding there is.
You do know about the Time Warp Tearoom??
Tuesday Nites year around.
There was about 35 or 40 bikes there tonight, with 10 or more being ADV members.
Come on down and meet some like minded riders.
thanks for the trip report! agreed that brookside is noisy and cramped. drive on down the natahala gorge along the river. hang a right at the big NOC store--THE VILLAGE OF WESSER. Up the road about a mile is LOST MINE campground. very nice and spacous sites. a real quiet campground even during rafting season.
Thanks! I won't mention it to the wife. Actually, she likes getting me out of her hair every now and then.
Also appreciate you sharing that photo. It's the only one I have of me riding the bike. Hopefully plenty of more to come over the years.
I checked into that Blue Ridge campsite before I left, but it wasn't open yet. I think it opens up in a couple weeks. I'll definitely look up the others you suggested as well. Camping with some fellow bikers would definitely make the trip more interesting.
That is such a great area to ride in. We like to go up in those parts for a nice weekend trip when we can.
I like it better when the leaves & tourist are all gone. Great pictures too
I've heard of it, but never been. Is that in Happy Holler? I play in a rock band and usually have practice on Tuesday nights, but I can skip one here and there. How late do folks usually hang around?
Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely check it out. I saw the website for Lost Mine and can't remember why I chose Brookside instead. I did feel very lucky to the be the only one there.
My pleasure. Best of luck with your move!
The Cherohala was just rated #7 of the best riding roads in the US by AMA members. It's really nice in the off season or on weekdays! Thanks for the report. The Burgerbasket Rocks!
Usually get there around 5:30 and leave by 8ish.
Yes on Happy Holler.
Cherohala is my all around favorite road.
Of course it looks quite different in January.
Nice report! Hope to ride there again myself soon.
