    Great ideas....The past 2-years we did longer 250-300 mile day rides for Saturday. Had a great time but we'd like to see some of the cool local sites this year.

    Here are a couple of GPX routes of destinations around Pine Mountain for you to check out and see if they interest you.

    We'll also have a couple of guided rides led by members of our Kentucky Crew. Knowing the Crew, a good lunch stop will be included in the trip!

    See you on the mountain!

    Of course, the very first getaway I ever went on, the riding group was formed right here on the forums... so, also very effective.

    A photo from that first ride taken by my forum buddy Chris Wilhelm on the Cherahala Skyway, Fontana Getaway 2015.

    It looks like a filing cabinet is sneaking up on you from the other side of the rock wall! Glad to know you escaped its clutches!

    Good to hear! Despite the weather forecasts, great riding weather. I put on rain gear jacket the last 40 miles, but only encountered drizzle.

    Great time!

    Wife & I had a great time! Cheers to Daryl, Becky and the Kentucky Crew to hosting what we thought was the best Pine Mtn. Getaway in the three we have attended. Food was great and the Saturday night steak dinner was a nice surprise! Riding in that area was a blast as usual and my wife winning the set of Conti's was the icing on the cake. So glad we were able to have this event...It's been a rough year. Already looking forward to coming back in 2021!!!!!

    I told my cousin, Beth Blue, the head chef at Pine Mountain, to take care of you all... sounds like she did.

    I'm a little late in posting this but we had a great time, thanks to the hosts and organizers for your efforts! I'm not exactly a morning person so I missed the organized rides Saturday, but we went out and just took roads at random for a couple of hours, every road was wonderful. I don't know if you could find a bad road down there if you tried. We're hoping to return next year and probably stay over an extra day or two.

    If you were serious... myself and three other MOA'ers will be staying there next Wednesday evening and dining; we'll drop your name too her.
    All roads to the Falling Leaf Peeper Rally... run through Pineville!

    Yes, by all means do and please, if you see Beth Blue, tell her that her cousin is proud of her and misses her. Her dad, (my uncle) died the week of the pine Mountain Getaway, and she soldiered on like a trooper... a true professional.

    I'm sorry for your family's loss Reece; if the opportunity presents itself... your important message will be conveyed.

    Sincerely,
