Good times with great people always seem to happen when Tour de Tellico comes to town! This is the ride that normally brings people from far and wide, into the town of Tellico Plains and it's surrounding mountains! You will probably see folks from Florida, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee...........and so on! So............wherever you call home, come hang out a few days with us at Cherohala Mountain Trails Campground.....with some of the greatest riding in the country!




If you are not sure what to pack.............bring it all! I'm sure you can make it fit!






Don't have a KLR...........no worries...........our bikes play well with others and enjoy the surroundings no matter what they look like.





Not sure if we are spirited enough? Don't worry about that.........we normally have enough regulars that know the area that we have multiple rides to choose from: Mild, Wild, and in between.






Picky about what you eat? Well.......there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from in the area! This just happens to be my choice of breakfast from the kitchen at CMTC!






Don't know anybody? Well, let me introduce myself, my name is Chuck (cherokee_chuck).........I'm the handsome one in this pic. ??????? No......the guy on the left......anyway..........now that you know me, I hope to see you guys there!






And if it's been a while since you have been to a TDT.......come on back........we would love to see ya again!

If you are wanting a cabin, don't pay attention to the websight. Wayne is holding all the cabins for our group. We will try and leave those available for folks staying 2-3 nights, but give him a shout anyway.

I'm thinking I might change my tire there... The tire machine seems very tempting right now

OK, folks............we are heading down the final stretch! The weekend is looking very promising with the weather!

All cabins are rented for at least Friday and Saturday nights. There are some available for Thursday, if needed.

Also......if you have a cabin to yourself and are wanting someone to split the cost, give a shout here on this thread.

Look forward to seeing everyone! I will be mixing up the routes some this year to give people different sights!

Finishing touches on the thread before heading out tomorrow for the Early Bird ride! Probably leaving out around 10:30......waiting on a few people to show up.

We will have mostly mild to medium riding, with the exception of my Wild ride option on Friday.

After riding 2 full days and 2 partial days...........I was a little pooped. But man, what a great weekend of riding and hanging with friends! I want to thank the gang at CMTC for a great place to get together! There were a lot of new folks to come out and ride with us and of course the regulars! We had 36 riders join together for some riding throughout the weekend.........hope to see you again, soon!



THURSDAY (Early Bird)


Andy, Jim, and I headed out for some lunch before heading to meet up with a few other riders. We ended up missing each other, but I'm sure fun was had by all. Also.........what a cold dip in the Tellico River! This is what we did.................

FRIDAY


Today is the day that I normally hold for an aggressive ride........aka, Hooligan Ride! Well, today was no different! While the milder ride had a solid 14 riders riding parts of the TAT's initial stage, there were 8 of us taking the Progressive Wild challenge!
Some riders that had not done a hooligan ride decided to take the challenge, and ending up doing a great job! Only some blood on occasion was shed. I personally took a limb in the shoulder, but luckily it snapped before impalement happened. Here are a few pics...........

SATURDAY

Another great day of riding to be had with my Cherokee Classic Ride! This normally has a large group of riders checking out some of the cool roads, scenery, and history of the Cherokee National Forest - Southern Region! Due to increasingly dusty roads, several of the regulars decided to take small groups out on different routes than the route I had for many of the first-timers and regulars, alike. Of course, you got to take everyone to eat some great local BBQ at Stadium BBQ! We started out with 13.......but do to wet weather promised for Sunday, a few folks decided to get back home, thus leaving a little after lunch.
