On Wednesday, November 11th, we took another Day Ride.

It was a beautiful day with blue skies and temperatures expected to warm into the mid 60’s. A perfect day for a ride.

Jeff kicks off our day in this short video:

We left home and took the back streets over to Magnolia.

We fueled up at the Mapco on Magnolia.

From Walland, we traveled on into Maryville, down Alcoa Highway, back into Knoxville and then home.

Our ride was short today, only 105 miles, but you can see in our wrap up video our reasons for hurrying home. And those reasons are the two new additions to our family….
