ride to boone...

28 September 2008

son is in his last year of high school and taking a look at colleges... we decided to make an adventure of it and use the bike as our mode of transportation... at the end of september headed to appalachian state university...

 on the way there, we stopped at crossroads harely... not worth the stop in my opinion - just not much to see in there. about the only reason to stop in there is to get s hd shirt, but their selection of shirts wasn't even that good...


 

after about a five hour ride taking mostly two lane roads, we made it to boone. we checked into the hotel room and decided to get something to eat. the hotel manager suggested canyons. turned out to be a great place to eat - good food, great company, and an awesome view. the building has a rich history that adds to the experience...





in the end, it was a great day... the ride to boone was good, mostly two lane roads, through town and places we'd never see on the highway. the weather was absolutely georgeous. and of coures the mountains in boone made for wonderful riding...

you can check out the 2008 ride map to see the route - this one in light blue...
