Ocoee/Hiwassee Loop Ride, April 23

Hey folks,
Riding weather's won't get any better than this until the fall. April 23, Easter weekend, I'd like to meet some folks for a ride in Cherokee National Forest. Leave from Cleveland TN, wandering over to Ducktown and McCaysville (lunch in McCaysville) on FS roads, then back to Cleveland (or thereabouts) on FS roads.

Route will be beast friendly for GS's, Tigers, Stroms, etc., and pace will be medium-ish and steady, but faster guys can filter to the front. Ride 1/2 day and beat US 64 back home, or stick around for a full day. Plan on maybe 150 miles or so, fuel at halfway point.

Meet in front of Ocoee Outdoors (intersection of US64 & Hwy 314 at 9:00 EST, kickstands up at 9:15. Hope to see some of you there.

Brent

Easter eggs? I was thinking gold Krugerrands-that might up the ante a bit.

Sounds like a fun ride. I'd go for it if it wasn't Easter weekend.
I'll catch the next one. If you're still invitin', that-is.

Hey folks,
Thought I oughta move the meetup spot across the street to Ocoee Outdoors. Trying to pull out of that overlook parking lot is a deathtrap-I can foresee adv'ers getting mashed under a dump truck in that curve. There's a gravel lot in front of the outfitter; we can meet there.

My heart will be with you guys, but my body will be home with out-of-town visitors. Would it be possible for you to post a map of some kind so I could ride your route later? This kindness would be greatly appreciated! (Not that I'm begging or anything like that , but PLEASE ) Hope y'all have a great @ a safe day!

For the guys that didn't make it, we had a great day of riding. Maybe we can get together next time.

Sorry, routes are top-secret and carefully guarded to protect the innocent.
