Ride this Saturday?

Anyone care to meet for a ride this Saturday in eastern TN/western NC? Maybe we can share favorite roads with each other. Weather should be nice.

Can't do it. I have started my life as the father of a youth league soccer player. So my Saturdays will be tied up for another month or so.

What roads did you have in mind, Mark? It's supposed to be in the low- to mid-sixties this weekend around here, but sunny all weekend.

I was already contemplating getting out for a ride either Saturday or Sunday, possibly riding the Cherohalla. I'm about a two hour ride from Tellico Plains. If you wanted to ride the Cherohalla Saturday, I may be able to meet you there in Tellico Plains sometime late Saturday morning. Maybe ride East on the Cherohalla and then back up and West through the Dragon and then across the Foothills Parkway. Google Maps is showing the route from Tellico Plains to Robbinsville to Walland to be just over 100 miles. I'm open to other suggestions as well, though.

Just remembered where you were. It would probably easier/more logical if we began in Walland and rode the Foothills Parkway to the Dragon to Robbinsville and then across the Cherohalla to Tellico Plains. Same distance either way, so I don't mind which way we go.

I'm up for this, just tell me where and what time, the wife may have to ride with me since her shoulder is in desperate need of a replacement.

I've been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for Saturday and also trying to get a few other people I know out to ride that day. I don't think they'll be able to go. The forecast is showing afternoon temps in the low 60s and below 40 at the start of the day. Would you be opposed to setting off on the route around 11 or 12 so that it's warmed up a little bit?

There's a BP service station in Walland near the beginning of the Foothills Parkway. I can be there by 12pm, fueled up and ready to ride tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be a little better on Sunday. Just throwing that out there.

Is Walland on the north end of the foothills? Since it's raining here now, that means I cannot possibly cut mother-in-laws yard till Sunday afternoon, earliest.
