Hey pig!
I had a class cancel tomorrow night, so I can meet up, preferably after 6:30.

Cool! We get into town about 1pm, airlines permitting, and are staying at a place in North Shore near the Walnut St. Bridge. I shot Brent a PM too. We want to hear about this "railroad bed" that looks like a creek. The wife saw the pics and said "I am SO riding that one day!!"

I'll PM you my number.

I'd be happy to show y'all around town (or the county)during the day when the boys are in school on Friday. PM sent.

Hey Tim!
I'd like for that to be the plan. As I'm at the antique store today, so it would be easy for me to get there around 6:30.
I'm pretty positive Brent is showing up as well. I'll give a shout out to Bert and see what he's up to.

Monte ~ you coming?

Um, have you seen the forecast? insert snomoticon When those areas of green turn blue or pink on the radar, that means mayhem on the roads. Hamilton County already let the kids out early from school. I'll probably be at the gym, if I go out at all this PM. Y'all be careful out there tonight.

Anybody want to ride Saturday or Sunday??? The weather's gonna finally clear up.

I'm gonna pound pavement in N. Ga Saturday, but was thinking maybe an off-road ride Sunday. I may be carrying a pillion Sunday, so my pace will be slower. Leave morning-time, back home by 5-ish.

Bring your wheels over tomorrow before noon if you want to do the change. Left you a VM. I thinking of a DS ride Sunday. Monday is a no go due to a volunteer trail work day.

Sunday DS ride it is. Meetup spot is BP gas station at the corner of Ooltewah Ringgold rd & East Brainerd rd at 10am. From there we will take 2 lane twisty roads to BFE and forest roads. Bring a tail bag lunch and water. Big and little bikes welcome. Knobbies might be a good idea.

Monday a holiday?

If Monday is a holiday for you - lets ride! Street/dirt or both. Weather looks sunny but chilly.

Nice riding with you today ABHulgan. First stop on Starr Mountain.

On the downhill side before descending into Tellico.

The Tellico River was a torrent today. It provided just the right ambience for lunch at Kat's Deli. We stopped in at Tellico Moto Outfitters and chatted with MiniMike for a bit before lunch. We were his first customers of the day at 1PM. What a great day for a ride.
