DAY RIDE TO JELLICO AND HUNTSVILLE

On Monday, January 20, 2014 we took a Day Ride to Jellico and Huntsville. As we got ready to leave, it was a cold 37 degrees and the cats were smart enough to be in for the morning.

Fortunately for us, we have the gear to ride in the winter. Our gear includes our thermal lined chaps, our heavy leather jackets along with our Gerbing Heated Gear. We also wore our Pilot helmets with shield, our neck warmers and sturdy leather boots. With the proper gear, cold weather riding is very enjoyable.

We left home and traveled up Clinton Highway. We stopped in Clinton to top off our tanks and get a quick snack.

We stopped in downtown Jellico looking for a place to eat lunch, but since it was a holiday, only the fast food restaurants were open. We took a few photos and decided to continue on with our ride and eat in Huntsville.
