Headed up North to Devil's Triangle/Catoosa area yesterday with Monte. Catoosa was closed. Poor signage got us 80% across it before meeting a ranger who informed us of the fact.

We were looking for Nemo's Tunnel, a mythical place of darkness and moisture that tests your mental abilities more than riding prowess. It exists.

Hwy 116 rivals Blood Mountain in volume, perhaps not quality. Evened up the sides of me tars.

Yeah man, the tunnel made the trip worthwhile. My feet were still wet when I got home.






Highway 116 was way more challenging than Blood Mountain, especially dodging the guys on quads trying to shut the door on us in the braking zones.

Ahh, it's a small world. The Cohutta 100 mountain bike race is this Saturday. The racers will be riding some of the fire roads to connect the single track trails, so be careful up there.

What's the Cohutta 100, some kinda lame-ass bicycle race or something?

Stolen Bike Alert

Hey folks, two thieving scumbags broke into Griffith KTM on Monday night during the storms and made off with two new KTMs. With alarms going off all over town due to the weather, they got away. Be on the lookout for a new KTM 300 XC-W and a 500 XC-W.
