SUN, 23  (Next week) -- Sent this to my E Mail List in case someone wants to join us. I have a ride planned for East TN Bikers. So, far only 3 interested and not sure about those. If anyone of the 3 can make it and commit to the plan as it is, WILL DO IT. Basically as it is planned now - DEPART McD at Seymour at 8:30AM. ROUTE to Helms Ferry crossing, then Harrogate, some favorite roads to Sneedville, then curvy Hwy 61, back over Hwy 31 (Treadway), Chinguipin Rd and some other favorite roads back to Blaine, TN (one guy might split at Baline). Then back to Seymour.  It's a medial long ride of a bit over 200 miles, fast moving (not racing, but), somewhat challenging, interesting ride (I Think). I would say - not for beginners. IF INTERESTED - Let Me Know and join us.
 
More Details are posted on www.EastTNBikers.com  under FORUM (Events). 
 
By the way --- all subject to change if find out No Interest (folks interested have various issues, work, distance as ETBers are spread out, and bike issues). However, I think at least  one will make it.
 
EARLY PART OF WEEK:
 
MON, 17 -- Gym sometime. Mow a couple strips of yard where septic lines run), change oil in Scooter (might let it go one more ride).
 
TUE, 18 -- I plan to ride to Bubbling Spring Range early (leave home by say 7:30 or 8:00AM). Takes 1 1/2 HR to get there. Probably be there a couple hours at least. That would near noon (+/- some) when leaving there. Nice run up Hwy 107 to Greenville after - maybe do that for a TIPTON Stop (make up for missed one last THU due to jackie's Get Off). BTW, if interested, but not to shoot -- can meet at Bubbling Spring around 11:30AM. LET ME KNOW.
 
WED, 19 -- No plans except it is normally a gym day (ride to gym).
 
THU, 20 -- Definite Ride (Betty VOL Day is always a good ride day). No Plan at present.
Been thinking about:
The route I had planned last THU, but if I go to TIPTON's Cafe TUE will not go there again; A route to Cataloochee Valley (Elk time of year and trees should be colorful); A trip to Muddy Pond (Sorghum making - not sure what days they are making, usually try to make one trip in Fall of Yearr over there);Finally, a long ride (about 70 miles between Oneida and Huntsville) to BKF (maybe lunch would be more practical)  at Red Star Grill where Jim (WI Jim) and I stopped on a ride. IF I DO Red Star Grill ride ---
 
FRI, 21 --  No plans except it is normally a gym day (ride to gym).
