We left our home in North Knoxville at 10:30am. The temperature was 50 degrees, the skies were blue and it was a perfect day for a ride.
We took Western Avenue, filled our tanks, then rode to Oak Ridge and into Oliver Springs. In Oliver Springs we took 62 through Wartburg, then on into Lancing.
From Lancing, we continued on 62 to Clark Range. We stopped along the way for a short break and a light cracker snack.
After our snack, we continued on 62 into Monterey.
From Monterey, we took 84 into Livingston.
Once in Livingston, we rode around awhile looking for a local restaurant to eat. The diner we had on our list was closed so we opted for the Dairy Queen. Many locals were here eating lunch plus they had ice cream- seemed like a good choice.
The staff was friendly and the food was good.
After eating lunch, we rode back into the town square. Livingston is a quaint town with friendly people. Many bikers were out on this day giving us lots of friendly waves. We sat in the town square and took photos.
Jeff talks about our trip so far in this short video:
After gawking around awhile, we got back on our bikes, fueled up and continued on our trip.
We continued our ride taking 52 toward Jamestown. 52 is a very curvy and scenic road that climbs up the plateau.
52 took us through Jamestown and on into Rugby.
We rode through Rugby and finally down to 27 at Elgin.
We rode north on 27 through Robbins and into Huntsville where we took 63 through Scott County. 63 slides right into Campbell County where we took Old 63 on into Caryville.
Once in Caryville, we stopped to fill up our tanks and eat a quick snack.
We then took 25W south through Lake City, south into Clinton and then Clinton Highway back to Knoxville.
We got back home at 6:30pm and our total ride was 245 miles. It was a long and fun day of riding.
