When did it happen?

I can remember when I first started riding again in 2004, the HOV lane gave me fits. It felt like the divider wall was always trying to pull me into it and rode slower than the posted speed limit. Just realized yesterday that I was booking it in the HOV land and didn't even notice the wall was there.

On His Ride,

Re: When did it happen?

Hey Jerry, you're right. I'd taken the dig if the opportunity was given, especially if it was you.

And funny you should mention gravel roads, espcially with my aversion to them after the incident coming home from CCR 07. Not so much after this little 12 mile side trip on Saturday afternoon.

GPS lied this time just like it did when Woody and I were running together.


It got uglier.


This is a fire service road coming out from a river crossing after I decided going further wasn't a smart idea and turned around and headed out. This was also marked as a major road on the GPS.

Re: When did it happen?

Where is this road you found, Steve? Looks like a good one for the Dakar.
i'll be in your area over Labor Day weekend but you'll be at CCR, right?

Re: When did it happen?

The road is just north of Maxeys, GA. I road is Lower Wire Bridge Road. There is lots of dirt to ride and get lost in back there.
