No kidding? I used to ride there all the time back in the 90's. Give me a shout next time you go and I'll meet you there!

I don't remember the tunnel though.

The place where he posted the pictures of wouldn't be worth the drive from GA. It's not that big. Now Eastern KY is well worth it, tons of off pavement fun out that way. As a matter of fact, I'm working on an eastern KY loop that's going to be right around 900 miles. It will be setup similar to the TAT but will have optional hard core sections thrown in. It's been a 5 year project and I'm almost finished.

I'll be heading down from Bloomington early and camping at morango cave campsites. Doin the cave thing for a couple hours. Saturday doing the canoe trip for a couple hours. And I'd like to find some good stuff to ride. If any ones up for it let me know.

We will be meeting to head up to Madison at 8:00 AM on Sunday at the McDonalds off Exit 0 (I-65) in Jeffersonville, IN. We'll take mostly back roads to Madison, but taking a fairly direct route in order to get there and enjoy some new roads. Once in Madison, the route is about 120 miles long. There may be a couple water X-ings as well as gravel and rough roads. All are welcome to come along. Here is a link to where we're meeting.

Madison Area Ride

Holy Crap! There are so many fantastic roads East and North of Madison. The GPS tracks Kris_Kris gave me are awesome. I thought there would be some gravel and mostly twisty roads, but there were so many great gravel roads that I was floored. My former opinion of the area resulted in me choosing the wrong wheelset for this ride.



Should have put the bigger hoops with knobbies on. Live and learn, but the roads were still a blast without knobs. Here are a couple of pics...I'm not much of a picture taker.

Here is a picture of Mark with the appropriate equipment for the ride.



The bridge was closed on Bear Creek road and we looked for a way to get through.



But after scouting around in the creek, we decided to back track.



We were warned about the super slick concrete creek crossings, but they were all almost completely dry, without any slickness. I count that a blessing, being on street tires.

If you get a chance, you should try out the area, I think the gravel may be better and more plentiful than the HNF.

Ditto to what Jerry said. I had a blast! What a great ride, perfect roads, not too hot and just the right amount of miles. I logged about 270 from Louisville round trip. I was getting tired of the seat on the wr though.

Nice mix of gravel...








and paved twisty back roads...





Jerry power sliding on his street tires...








Of course, power sliding on wet grass with those tires will end up like this...








Ended the ride with our HD buds in Friendship, IN...





Thanks for sharing the route Kris. Looked like a lot of work putting it together.

Hate that I missed it, but couldn't pass up the band lineup for the festival I was at Sunday. Any time either of you want to go again, just say the word. That looks like a great ride not too far from home.

Arkansas...

I'm taking a little family vacation in Arkansas. Had to show you guys a pic of where we ate lunch yesterday.




The Oark General Store in Oark Arkansas. It's a must stop on the TAT for a good meal. No riders while we were there, but I saw signs of them.

















Local rider John (sourjon) is starting off on the eastern part of the TAT starting Thursday headed to a MTF rough road ride in Colorado. Say Hello to Dan, Andy, Braz and the group for me. What a ride that's going to be! Take lot's of pics and share them with us when you get back.

Rider safe brother and try to stay cool. Very hot in NW Arkansas.
