This Day Ride from March 17, 2010 is re-posted here from our old website:
We woke up Wednesday to another cold overcast day- but since it was our day off- we decided to take a day ride. The morning temperature was 44 degrees- so we decided to dress for the cold. We both wore our thermal chaps- heavy leather jackets- neck warmers, full face helmets and winter gloves.
After lunch we took 11W to Rutledge. We stopped to see our good friend, David Hurst at his paint shop- “Slide Effects” on Hwy 92.
After leaving David’s shop, we headed toward Cherokee Dam when it started to rain. It didn’t rain hard- but it was enough to get the roads really wet- so we made it to 11E and decided to head back to Knoxville. By the time we got to East Knoxville, the rain had stopped and we decided to look at some of the old buildings on MLK Boulevard.
After leaving the Tea Room, we decided to ride on home.
