I am baaaack......

Hello everyone....got back on the bike after being out of town for a few weeks...met some friends and rode in NE GA.
Don't ride there often but there are some great roads....

Here is one of them......

The beginning is rough, rutted with elevation changes......




The middle section......long video but you can skip to the creek crossings at 4 and 7 minutes....also a nice desent section between the two crossings.



...then the last drop down to the river and the river crossing.....one bike down...went too far to the left and a little hot....all I got was the "pickup"....
