so no Maine for me But good news for my fellow n00bs: Lynne Carey, the RM of the Rock n Ride, is hosting a 10-hour mini-rally on 9/14. If you're lucky, you might even be able to start from home (we won't know until we see the bonuses and whether there is a minimum to become a finisher- but don't let that stop you). I only met Lynne at the end of the RnR, but you get the strong impression that she considers rally-riders to be like family. Next year's RnR Im going to start with the local group just so I can hang out and chat with her more. details: Tennessee Twister is coming! This fun filled mini 10 hour rally will be held Saturday, September 14th. Riders will start anywhere OUTSIDE of the state of Tennessee and finish in Crossville, TN. Bonus locations will be scattered throughout eastern KY, TN, western NC, VA, WV and North GA. The hope is to let you enjoy a fall day chasing bonuses on twisty back roads instead of slabbing in on interstates. Registration is $75 for singles and $85 for two ups. There will be a no host dinner at a local restaurant after the rally. Photos will be submitted by email and scored as you ride. Registration is now open at https://rides.jasonjonas.com/regRequest.php?id=659 I have like 3 things on the calendar for that weekend already but I think this one might win out.
