On Tuesday, December 15th, we took a Day Ride. Our destination- the Devil’s Triangle in Morgan County.We woke to a beautiful day, with blue skies and mild temps, expected to be around 60 degrees- a perfect motorcycle day.
Jeff kicks off the day in this short video:
We left our home in North Knoxville and headed down Western Avenue.
We took Western Avenue to Oak Ridge, then took 58 to Kingston.
In Kingston, we stopped at the Handee Burger for an early lunch.
After lunch, we got back on the bikes, took 70 to Midtown, then rode through Harriman and took 27 North to Wartburg.
From Wartburg, we took 62 south.
From 62 south, we took 116 which starts the Devil’s Triangle.
On 116, right after the prison, the road becomes very winding with sharp sweeping curves and extreme switch backs that require you to come almost to a stop before maneuvering safely around the curve. Adding to the difficulty of these curves are the extreme drop offs. It’s a great road to ride, but it does require full concentration.
After navigating the more difficult parts, we were finally able to stop for photos.
That part of the Devil’s Triangle is about 23 miles long, and it brought us out south of Lake City, right at 330. 330 took us into Oliver Springs and completes the Triangle.
From Oliver Springs, we took 61 to Clinton, then back to Knoxville on 25W.
We got back home at 3:30pm and our total mileage was 145.
It turned out to be an absolute perfect day for a ride- 63 degrees on December 15th. Doesn’t get any better that that!
