It is run and done. Arrived at the site late listened to an antique GPS that had me lost....no matter, found the guys Matt and Rick and set up camp...Was a good night sleep as I was tired from the drive up....Rick and Jimmy got to site late and set up near a lake.....Saturday came along and it was time to set out on the Cherokee Challenge....the thing is it was a challenge, lots of it were nice forest service roads connected with some washed out clay and leave covered "roads" We found one section that was uphill and rutted on both sides ,wet lots of clay....half way up one section there was a group ahead of us with a break down...as always we offered assistance to no avail, tool needed we didn't have....Around them we went and about 50 miles in we had one rider ,Matt have a near catastrophic breakdown....his C/S sprocket came off and forward momentum ceased rapidly.....luckily he saved it and upon inspection his day was over....I hate to admit but mine was too....I am 7 months S/P total hip replacement and even though I didn't complete the ride just to be able to get back out there and ride again is a win to me...More training is indicated and 'm in....There are lots of pics floating around FB from the event and I'll try to post a few of mine here....All in all it was a good time had by all and I even won me a door prize....got me a new hat...wow....To those who for what ever reason did not attend.....your loss, I'm in for next year !!!
