Hickory NC Sunday Ride Jan. 22nd

Seems to be several locals new to the forum looking for some riding areas. I am planning to ride Sunday in the Wilson Creek/Table Rock/Linville/Ahoe Gap area. If some of you in the surrounding areas want to ride in on Saturday evening, you are welcome to stay at my house to get some free breakfast. 90% gravel & fire roads, 10% pavement. Good for all bikes. See the link below, PM if you want to stay at the house, or just show up at the following locations.

9:00am : FoodLion, rt 16 & rt 10 intersection in South Newton(close to Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet)

9:30am : McDonalds hwy 321N in Hickory

10:00am : McDonalds at 321N/Smith Crossroads in Lenoir

God, wish I could join you. If you haven't already found it try the County Line Rd off hwy 183 near Linville Falls. GPS 35deg.57'5"N and 81deg.56'6"W. Don't pass up the view from Wiseman's View off this road. I think the state rd # is 1256 but stick to the gps co-ord. One hell of a good ride and a good view of Hawksbill Mtn. from the top. Enjoy

Thanks for putting something together! Unfortunately I had knee surgery on Tuesday and I won't be able to ride by then.

I stand corrected. Hwy 126 would be the lower end, would it not? Have some less than fond memories of runnig 126 back into Morganton in one of the worst thunderstorms ever encountered whch pointed out the necessity of the t-mod on the vent tube.

Don if I can make it on Sat. it'll be late. As long as the weather don't shut me down I'll do my best to be there.

I like my eggs over easy, ham on the salty side and biscuits a little soft.

NCbub, about 5-6 riders for sure, could be 10-12 riders. Might divide into two groups if needed. Plenty of dirt roads for all. Looks like 50% chance of rain Sunday, that will probably keep some riders away. Everybody is welcome, just PM me if you want to stay Saturday night. I'm sure we can make some sort entertainment happen Saturday night !

I'm going to try to make this ride, seems like part of the group I saw 2 weeks ago on Brushy. I have heard the area you are riding is excellent riding and sites. All depends on work.


BTW dlrides, I want to see that big GSA sliding through the turns again at 80 mph !
