I thought I was following a route @dpippin had sent me but since I wasn't using GPS who knows At one point the pavement ended. Pavement resumed after a couple of miles. . Soon we were approaching Lake Lure. Some time ago I read a ride report and the author posted that he would often eat at grocery stores for lunch. I decided to try that. Good Idea as I had a tasty deli sandwich, bottle of water and chocolate croissant for around 4 bucks and we had a comfortable place to sit down and eat. After lunch we gassed up and continued on.
