Re: February 15, 2014 Club Ride

Rooster is correct... I don't recall a Club Ride postponed due to weather. After watching the forecast, I don't believe the weather will be an issue. It will definitely be warmer than the last Club ride. If need be, the day of the ride, there maybe some trail changes. That always depends on weather and the group that shows up to ride. Hopefully it will be a good "dust free" ride. See ya on the mountain!

Don't know about the Road but wait till you get up there. Cleared about 40 acres next to the road. You can see Knoxville from the Campground now. I love my job.

Hope to see you all on the ride. Weather looks a little rocky tonight and tomorrow but we should have a great ride. Don't forget your WMA permit and your Windrock Park permit. :D

Any out-of-state folks planning to make this ride? Trying to decide if I drive up from Alabama and face the cold with you all. :)

Re: February 15, 2014 Club Ride

I/We have been talking and trying to plan on coming up. I heard there was chances of snow and all but thought we might still be able to get to Oak Ridge before it set up too bad. I was going to try to get my RB permit tonight at the walmart but I guess lots will depend on how far we can get and if we can get up there first. I think I can hit a Walmart in South Pittsburg, TN and get a permit before it gets too late and they quit having somebody in sporting goods to sell them.

We have made into TN with just rain so far. Got our wma permit and hope we can make it from the hotel to the mountain in the morning. Weather report is saying there may be some snow overnight in Oliver Springs.

We enjoyed the ride in the snow today. The new river train was very cool.
Seemed like a big turn out of people today. Anybody get a count?

Re: February 15, 2014 Club Ride

Great and Interesting ride! Have never ridden in this much snow @ Windrock before. Thanks Doug (and Tammy) and Rooster (and other Windrock members) for another successful ride!

I hope the person that took the spill this morning is doing well!

Great turnout, some nice folks! Was also able to catch up with old friends!

Glad I made the trip!

...until next time

Cheers!

Re: February 15, 2014 Club Ride

Thanks to Doug & Tammy for planning and guiding the New River Train Destination Ride. And Thanks to Rooster for letting me shotgun with him again, I had a blast and enjoyed the ride as I believe most of the other riders in this large group did too..maybe a few of the southern folks may have gotten cold. lol

The train was something I had been wanting to see for a long while and I am glad I had the chance to share it with some Awesome people. I would like to hear the story of the train, it's history and how it found it's home there.

And finally I pray that the lady that took the spill on trial 4 is still doing ok, I know she is probably feeling it today, and I wish her a speedy recovery, and hope to see them back on another ride soon! Here is some video of the recovery of her Grizzly and the Club members & guest that jumped in to help out our fellow rider...we never leave anyone behind!!!

Look like a great ride with a great turnout. Glad the rider that went off the trail wasn't hurt to bad. We have all had tumbles and its always better when there are people there to help you get it back on the trail.
