Bama Jama '18, Nov 2-4, 2018

Thanks Brad............Always a great time!

Finally getting time to start a thread to announce our annual ride in the Yellowhammer State. Although we can't offer the kind of mountains you may be used to in TN, NC and N.GA, there is still some good riding and splendid beauty to behold in Northeastern Alabama. From the Mountainway Skyway across the highest point in the state to a well kept secret of motorcycling roads, Little River Parkway, we have some really good Twisties. From the tragic tale of Noccalula Falls to the final resting place of the inventor of the typewriter ( if you remember those) we have some good points of interest. And to top each day off, there will be meals and plenty of comraderie around the campfire in the evenings.

Once again we will start each day from my place on Lake Weiss in Leesburg, AL. We have added some beds this year, so there is room for several riders. They will go on a first come status. There is also room for tents if you prefer. There is a Days Inn about 5 miles away in Centre and a few RV campgrounds nearby if you require more creature comforts.

Routes

Friday - Plans are to follow the old TAG Railline from Leesburg to Pigeon Mountain Tunnel! A little side trip to the nearby mines, then through the cove and eat lunch in Mentone. Afterwards, we hit some of the great sights and FS roads as we eventually make our way down the Canyon!
Saturday - Take a ride through the tornado hit, college town of Jacksonville, AL, to ride to the top of the mountain for some views of the valley/ridges. Go have some fun on the FS500 road network in the northern section of the Talladega NF.....including some BBQ for lunch and eventually find the old ghost town of Bluffton, AL!
Sunday - For a nice half day of riding, a trip to Noccalula Falls and other sights on the great surrounding roads are in store before you make your way home!

Keep Loving Rides!
