Bluhduh Winter sanity ride

It's been too cold to enjoy riding here for a solid month.


Then this weekend tah-dah! Warmerish

We loaded and hauled to Burnside.




Then we hauled hiney for Pine Mt. State Park.

That's it? I guess that is all it takes when you don't have the weather to enjoy much riding. Great Ride Report!

Not quite all.




We wandered over to Williamsburg to look for a road a friend had told Road Ranga about, Muddy Creek Gap Road. But even with maps and GPS the road wasn't located.
But this road was intresting and went from asphalt to gravel to mud.




The muddy road let us out on a paved two laner but as we continued east the pavement deteriated and the disappeared. This high spot overlooked a coal mine.




We made it to Pine Mt. State Park Lodge and hit the lunch buffet . Not a bad veiw with lunch either.




Stuffed with lunch ,we headed back toward the truck. This time we found Muddy Creek Gap Road. A few years ago this would have been all gravel , now it wears a thin coat of blacktop but , gravel and mud show through in plenty of spots.





I ran my Go-Pro and got a decent vid of Muddy Creek and the roads west of Williamsburg almost to Cumberland Falls til the memory card filled up. This pic is in the parking for the falls, we were short on daylight so skipped the falls this time. We made it to the truck in time to load up in the twilight.
Good times.

Beating the winter blues!

Enjoyed the pictures! We'll have to get together, I'm down that a way from time to time. It is true that more & more of the roads are getting paved. Thats just not right.

O.K. two weeks later, more treatment for the long time winter blues.

There's 4 of us this time ,Steveie on his 705 KLR needed to ride. Yeah, let's ride!

We hauled them down to Monticello in the A.M. and left the trucks near this storage facility. Ump called and got permission, one less thing to worry about.

We headed south toward Tennessee.










Ump and I stopped to check out some mules.



Farther on we entered the D.Boone Forest.



We stopped to Pow-Wow



Stevies cold weather gear includes "ass-less chaps" WTF?

It was well after noon ,so we decided to go into Tn. to find lunch.



It's always a good bet there'll be good food at a place that offers Horse Dentistry.



And the burgers were pretty good and we got some fresh cut from a potatoe fries. At the end of the meal the cook brought out a fresh cut pineapple. Bonous!


Fine decor too.

After the meal we went down to the Cumberland Valley Trailhead. The surface was sand ,rock and gravel. We had to kill the bikes to keep from spooking some horses.







And on to the end where we made a .2 mile hike to the White Oak Creek overlook.











And back to the bikes.

We went east to the Big South Fork.



Then we turned north ,it's getting late.



We got off on some gravel and stopped at Split Arch.




Back on pavement we ran beside this train for a way.



Right as we were going to cross the tracks, the train cut us off. We're back in Ky.

We flogged them pretty good the last thirty miles back to the trucks. Then it was Jim Beam time for the non-drivers.

First of all thanks to Sportakus and Gadget Boy for the replys .

This is a short one about the third Sanity ride, 2-19-11.
I had my bike loaded Sat. night and drove up to meet Road Ranja and Steveie Sun. morning.
On the way I noted my neighbor needs to salt her cows. They're licking up road salt beside the road by sticking their heads under the fence.




I reloaded my bike onto the trailer and we went east on I-64 and down the Mountain Parkway through Campton and unloaded near VanCleve.






The weather this time wasn't as nice as the last two rides. The temp was in the 40's with occaisional sprinkles. A little more than occaisional really.




I passed this swinging bridge and went back for a pic.



This is what happens if you get behind on the maintinance on your swinging bridge.



Then we went searching for the way to Decoy.































Well, the short story is we never got to Decoy.

We hung out waiting for a break in the rain in Big Lovely Cemetery, the cemetery so nice they named it twice.

Center-stand , It was an O.K. day , you know there's a lot of places to get in and out of up there. We barely scratched the surface. I want to go back for an overnighter and look around some more.



The cemetary has a permanent pavillion for services, It's a perfect place to check the map and have a snack while we waited out the rain.



If you have go to the eternal rest , this place looks as good as anywhere.





RoadRanja needed to layer up . Stevie acts as valet.






That's all the pics I took. We left Big Lovley and rode into Salyersville for a meal in the drizzle. The temps had dropped during the ride, one bank thermometer read 39. While we ate the sun came out and the temps moderated for the ride back to the truck.
