DAY RIDE – DECEMBER 4, 2012

This Day Ride from December 4, 2012 is re-posted here from our old website:

On Tuesday, December 4th, we took another Day Ride. Our destination was lunch in LaFollette. Freddie didn’t look at all upset that we were leaving.

DR12-4-12A

We left our home in North Knoxville around 10:30 am, the skies were sunny and the temperature was warm, around 50 degrees.

Since LaFollette is not that far from Knoxville, we decided to take a longer route to work up a good appetite.  We rode north on Tazewell Pike and stopped at a Weigel’s to gas up. Even with the temperatures warming, Pam still wears all her gear. (It has to be much warmer than 50 before I, Pam, shed any layers.)

We continued on Tazewell Pike to Halls where we took 131 through Plainview.

We then rode into Luttrell and then through Washburn, where we stopped for a few more photos.
