Hey boys and girls,
Two of my local friends and I,are planning on a long ride in 2 or 3 weeks! So, we are inviting anyone out there to ride with us! The route we have planned is around 80 miles! (i know,80 miles is not a world record, and Don-O does 80 miles every day befor breakfast!)
But this ride will take in 2 States and you will see every type of road from long straight and level stretches to narrow winding curves through valleys and canyons. This ride will require us to cross the Ohio river twice. Once on a bridge and then by Ferry boat! (which only cost $2.00 per bike) We will pass through Historic Maysville Ky, and then up river to another historic old river town, Agusta KY. child hood home of George Cloony! And where the movie Centennial was filmed!
Augusta is where we will cross back to Ohio on the Ferry. We will only be on busy roads for short periods, 2 or 3 miles at the most!
Just in case anyone would have a major breakdown that can`t be fixed by the side of the road, help is just a phone call away. I will call my wife and she will jump in the Silverado and come to the rescue. I may even be able to provide a "fresh mount" so that rider could continue on the trip? I have any tool and a lot of parts back at the shop!
We are planning on leaving my house/shop at 9 or 10 am. This trip will take 4 or 5 hours? Depending on how many times we stop to look around or how many breakdowns we may have? Hopefully when we do arrive back at my house, my wife will have the bbq fired up and we will have some Hambergers, Hot Dogs, Potato Salad Baked beans etc>!! All on "IkesBikes" of course!!
If this sounds like something you may want to do, please join us! I know it will be a great time!!
As soon as we get the exact date, i will post it.
