On Wednesday, January 21, 2015, we took another Day Ride.
The morning was beautiful with tons of sunshine. The high temperature for the day was predicted to be around 55 degrees. One of those perfect winter riding days!
Jeff kicks off our day in this short video:
We took off from our home in North Knoxville around 10:30am and rode north on Broadway. We then took Norris Freeway to Norris. We took 61 to Andersonville where we stopped to fill our tanks.
After fueling we continued on 61 to Big Ridge State Park.
After our break, we continued on 61 heading toward Maynardville.
61 is a nice curvy road with several switchbacks which brought us to 170North. 170 is a beautiful road which runs along Chestnut Ridge and comes out just north of Maynardville.
We then took 33 North to Tazewell where we took 25E going south.
We stopped at the Veterans Overlook in Bean Station, just at the crest of 25E, to take in the view.
Jeff talks about our ride so far in this short video:
After enjoying the view, we continued south on 25E eventually merging onto 11W South. 11W took us into Rutledge where we stopped at one of our favorite restaurants….
The folks are always friendly at the Down Home and the food was great. It’s right on 11W in the middle of Rutledge- so put it on your “ride to” list.
After lunch, we continued south on 11W to Blaine where we got back on 61. We then took 331 back through Gibbs.
We got back home at 3:30pm and our total ride was 124 miles.
Jeff wraps up the day in this video:

Is that Southern Fried Steak?
Yes it is Tom! Yummy stuff but only recommended in occasional doses. But… WELL WORTH the splurge!!!
Hey guys, is there anyway you could put up a map of the ride you take to make it easier to load. Like maybe yahoo maps or google maps to help out. Thanks.
Jeff uses an old fashioned paper map to determine the routes.
Our narrative includes the written directions so grab your map and map it out!
It’s a great way to connect with the route and get your bearings.
Thank you for following along. We really appreciate it!
