Started with the bike club on the cemetery ride, but had to get back early. Perfect fall morning.
Beautiful fall morning. Vivid colors. Feeling good 3 days after 200k.
Absolutely gorgeous fall day. Wasn't my best ride.
We drove over to Harlan and parked at Big Elk Campground. We first rode east following the C2C trail back but a few miles after it turns off of Mary's Peak Road it was unpassable due to mud, as a result of recent logging. Really bad sticky mud. So we turned around and rode back. We then went up Hilltop Road which was about a 5 mile climb on a single lane paved road. Very steep in places. We just went to the summit and turned around. Nice cool day with some sunshine. Gorgeous in the woods.
Started in Monmouth. Helmick to Simpson road which was somewhat loose chunky gravel with washboard. Ducked a rain squal before Garden road which is also gravel into Fall Citty. The Bread Board bakery was opened so we had lunch, thern checked out the falls and rode back via Monmouth Hwy.
