DAY RIDE – SEPTEMBER 29, 2010

This DAY RIDE from September 29, 2010 is re-posted here from our old website:

On Wednesday, September 29th we woke to a beautiful cool morning and took off on another day ride. We left our home in North Knoxville around 10:30am. It was a cool morning- around 55 degrees- so we both wore chaps, jacket and face masks. We took off riding north on Broadway to Norris Freeway. On Norris Freeway, we took 170 and rode it north all the way to 33, just north of Maynardville.

We were able to manage one stop for photos on 170. It’s a beautiful rode with many, many sites to see.
