Tour de Pisgah X - Sep 18-20

Yep..........it is that time of year.......summer is nearly behind us and TDP is upon us! The opening weekend of fall has been celebrated by attending Tour de Pisgah for the last decade! Our hosts, Terry and Elizabeth have been trying to sell their place, so this could possibly be our last time to stay at Riders R & R, unless the new owners decide to continue with the cabin rentals. So.......I hope to see a bunch of you guys out this September to hang and ride with the gang!

Who: Anyone wanting some Dualsport action!
What: Tour de Piscah X
Where: Rider's R & R in Del Rio, TN (423)972-1137 Bing Maps - Driving Directions, Traffic and Road Conditions
When: September 18-20 (Early Bird rides on Thursday, 17th)
Why: TDP is the place to be!


ATTENDING..............WHEN....................... ....STEED

TOURS

Leader...............Friday....................... .........Saturday................................S unday
cherokee_chuck...State Line Tour-9:00 (2.0)
steve..................Coming soon........

I will be at camp for Early Bird Ride on Thursday around 9am for anyone going to be there then. We can do some great local riding to suite your riding style.



SUMMARY OF TOURS

State Line Tour - I really enjoy riding the twisties and forest service roads along the TN/NC state line north to Roan Mtn! We could call this the Appalachian Trail Tour, since we will be all around it the entire trip!

Keep Loving Rides!

Well........Tour de Pisgah X is officially in the books! And for 6 straight years, we have been at Riders R & R! I would like to thank Terry and Elizabeth for everything they do for us! Even after their daughter had a nasty collision in a soccer game and had to stay at the UT Hospital till Friday morning, they were back cooking a mean supper for Friday night! Thanks again....you guys are the best!!

To start things off, due to having my kids soccer matches on Saturday, I decided to come in early on Thursday and ride then and on Friday. There were 6 of us on the Early Bird Ride: ElectroJoe, clogan, Hurricane, Sarah the Explorer, KentuckyKLR, and myself! We were in no hurry, so we got out of camp around 11. We headed out to Hot Springs....cruised through town....then headed toward Meadow Fork Community Store to have lunch.





I have been coming here practically every year since the very first TDP to eat some dogs or BBQ way back in the boonies. I knew they had a campground in the back of their property, but thought it was primarily for people that stayed year around. After talking with the owners, there is some consideration for us to stay here during TDP, IF, Terry and Elizabeth were to sell their place and the new owners didn't want to continue what we have going with our close friends, T & E! Here are a few pics of the place:














Probably just 5 or so miles up the road is the top of Hurricane Creek Road!





The back way up to the overlook close to Hurricane Creek Rd.

Overlook!








We make way over to see the Elk at Cataloochee.......I didn't get pics, but others did. On the way we stop to see the Pigeon River...... strange color. Not far from this point, Hurricane and his riding chic, Sarah, headed back to camp due to her sickness.




After seeing the elk, Joe, Chet, Chris and I headed back toward camp via FS roads. Chris and decided to split off and hit some trails before heading back for supper.

The Chili was awesome! Right around this time, Terry got a call from Elizabeth that Bailey was going to the hospital.





The gang decided to help with cleaning up. Poor Wayne and Sarah missed this since they decided to get a hotel room until she got to feeling better.





The spiders get big here!
