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.
Jeff talks about our ride in this short video:
We left home and traveled up Clinton Highway. We stopped in Clinton to top off our tanks and get a quick snack.
After fueling up in Clinton, we continued on 25 north through Lake City and into Caryville. We stopped to take a couple of photos across from Cove Lake State Park.
We rode from Caryville through Lafollette where we stopped and took a few photos of downtown.
We continued north on 25 stopping briefly to gawk at the rock formations.
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.
Right outside of Jellico, we stopped at Indian Mountain State Park.
Here is Jeff talking about our ride so far:
