Smoky Mountains 2017 - Entry 1

Smoky Mountains 2017 - Entry 1

A couple of months ago, I stopped in at Cycle Works while in Goshen.  During the course of conversation, Matt mentioned that he wanted to take Allen to the  Smoky Mountains area to ride the Tail of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway, visit Cades Cove, etc.  He proceeded to describe two previous trips from years back, places that he had visited and the great memories that he wanted to recreate with Al.  

Ride Report - Jun. 8, 2016

On Wednesday, June 8th, 2016, Team Cycle Works led a Supper Ride to The Friendly Inn in Albion, IN.  Matt and Allen were joined by thirteen good friends on a perfect evening.  The bikes ranged from Dual-Sport to Touring with everything in between.  Sport bikes were well-represented.  Two in particular exhibited notable balance skills.

We were hoping for a photo op with the bikes lined up in front of the Noble County Courthouse.  The carnival was in town which dictated parking around back.  On the up-side, this provided a perfect area for bench-racing and rear-wheel shenanigans after supper. 

Thanks to Matt, Al and friends for a great season opening Supper Ride.  We're looking forward to many more this summer.  Until next time, keep it under a hundred!
