Hits: 40I thought this was a good day for a summary. The day itself was uneventful except for two things. First, I watched a hawk dive from about 50 feet up straight into the ground to catch a rodent. The little animal slipped away and the hawk quickly grabbed the second chance and flew away […]
Hits: 5Today started out pretty good. Nice weather. Nice riding. We headed south to New Hampshire again. This time, we would be cutting across it to the west. We saw White Mountain, which still had snow cap areas. We rode on the back roads that wound up the mountain and back down the other side. […]
Hits: 3Well, it was a great ride to start. We grabbed breakfast at a Cracker Barrel after riding a ways. Then, we headed to Boston. This ride part wasn’t too bad, but then the hell began. NEVER go to Boston on your bike. They don’t want you. I led us into the first parking garage. […]
Hits: 3It wasn’t all bad, but it was bad and ended on really bad notes. Leaving Washington, we fought city traffic jams onto the GW Parkway. It took over an hour to leave the city. Once on the roads east, things got pretty nice. Crossing the Frances Scott Key Bridge over the Chesapeake Bay was […]
Hits: 16No riding today, but we walked through Washington, DC picking up some of the sites. So much to see in DC. Here are some samples of what we visited. After several hours of walking, we caught an Uber through rush hour traffic. What a zoo! Back on the road tomorrow!
Hits: 15I made an interesting observation today, though I have now been into 7 states, the only one with a welcome sign on the back roads was North Carolina, and there was no shoulder on that road to pull over and take a photo. The riding has been fantastic. I’ll grab some photos off the […]
Hits: 17Tennessee has some great roads and we head north on a few of them. Starting on the Tazewell Pike, we crossed onto some obscure road in Virginia (state number five) called River Road hoping that it is paved and in good condition. We drove through Pennington Gap and, following US-23, enter Kentucky, state number […]
Hits: 12Cornelia, GA is just a few miles from South Carolina, state number two. US-76 is my first goal as I basically clip the SC before back into GA. Next, I headed to Highlands, NC, state number three, where US-64 starts the riding into the mountains. Robbinsville is a favorite stop to refuel before continuing […]
