Ride to Stone Mountain State Park

Third time's the charm for those wanting to do the Stone Mountain ride. We will meet at Bob Evans just off Hwy 40's exit 126 at 8:30 am with KSU by 9:30 am. The ride will go up 16 through Hiddenite to Hwy 21 for the ride up. Leaving the park we will take Longbottom Traphill and Mountain View Roads until we connect with 18 on the way to Wilksboro and then 16 to Taylorsville. Google maps puts the 147 mile ride time at 3 hrs. 49 min. With stops and lunch everyone should be home around 4 pm

    We tried getting your attention and thought you might realize we stopped. I enjoyed everyone on this ride. Monti our pictures will show we found the store.

      Had the other bikes not been behind me, I would have qyickly realized you all stopped. I ended up going down to 64 and then back to Old Mountain road where we were earlier in the day!

      Somehow another group got behind me. I thought it was you all from my mirror. Did not realize it was strangers until Taylorsville. Not sure how they got between us.

    Anyone doing this ride should bring some drinks and snacks. Once past Elkin there may not be many convenience stores.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
