What an awesome day of riding.

Maggie Valley, Deals Gap and the Dragon’s Tail, Fontana Lake, through the Nantahala National Forest to Highlands, Cashiers, Rosman down 178 through Gorges, 11 N through to Chesnee to Cowpens, Clover, Lake Wylie and back home to SouthEast Charlotte.

Thanks to me, you can rest assured that I single handedly reduced the Spring bug population by at least a few hundred direct hits to the bike, my body and face. Since I didn’t have a face shield, some occasional pain was involved.

Me, Bro and Pops are wiped out from our marathon run through the beauty of NC, TN and SC. Wiped out, but looking forward to the next time.
