Last weekend Rattlesnake Run off Mentzer Gap looked like this.
That's what the road right by my house looked like a few days ago. Now it is clear and almost completely dry. Today's sunny weather really dried things out.
Almost 21,000 on the Doctor I see. Time for an upgrade.
Yeah, it is...
These Roads were a lot of fun. It was the first time I was on the southern end of the forest. I prolly could have spent a few more hours. I didn't even see any snow.
No pics from yesterday's ride, since my friend and I were enjoying the near perfect temps and road conditions too much to stop and take any. We saw several other riders enjoying Michaux, including a KTM 1290 Adventurer with Maryland plates. We spent three hours riding in and around Michaux and hit about all the good forest roads north of US30.
Weather this week looks like more riding is in my near future. Maybe I can get some pictures next time.
Monkeys at Michaux
Those are awesome!
Thanks. They are perfect for 25-30 mph on the gravel roads at Michaux. They will do 50-55 on the hard road but big hills will slow you down.
Just got back from riding more than 100 miles in and around Michaux. As usual, I did not take many pics. But, we had a great day of riding.
Someone was not so lucky recently. First picture shows the large rock with oil on it. The streak along the left side of the road in the second picture is the oil that spilled out after the rock ruptured an oil line/oil pan/oil filter. This was on Ridge Road a few miles out of Mt. Holly Springs.
That's a tough section. I flattened a tire there.
There was a woman driving a Lincoln Continental just down Ridge Road from where that rock was. We passed her going down, and I passed her again going up on the way back home about 5-10 minutes later. She had not gotten very far down in that period of time. Some guy in a Jeep was leading the way for her. She did not look happy. I think he was in big trouble.
Ridge Road south of Rt. 34 near Mt. Holly Springs is one of my favorite sections in the whole area, at least until the graders smooth it over in the spring after the winter ruts and rocks emerge. Had a great time on it two weeks ago while it was prime.
A low clearance car (like a Lincoln) would not be fun or safe up there at this time for sure.
