Someone told me the 8th is mother's day....so we'll move it to the following weekend.......

....It's almost that time of year again folks.... Our Free-State ride will be on us soon.

Campout at Brushy Lake Friday night, or just show up Saturday morning for free breakfast and the long days riding through the beautiful Bankhead Forest.

Lunch stop at Chef Troys Talk of the Town in Houston, Al.

.....Music, all y'all that play guitar, mandolin, banjo, etc...etc,,,BRING'EM.

The ride will be "BIG BIKE FRIENDLY".....depending on how many show up we'll divide into 2, possibly 3 groups.  Anyone with roll-chart holders I'll have the route printed out for those that want it.



.The BIG grill will be on-site for "sausage fest" Friday night....bring your meat!!!!!   We'll grill it up.

.

.

.Saturdays ride will require tags, etc.... optional Sunday ride around the Flint Creek trail system.  So, if you're hauling your bike to the ride, you can through your dirt-bike on there as well...or, ride your dual-sport around the trail.  16 miles of trail.

Definitely in for this one!

Let me know if you need any help! I know you have the routes down after so many years but if you want to explore some new roads just let me know!

If you want to run the route before hand I can track it for electronic distribution if anyone who wants to lead separate groups!

IN!!!!! Great folks, good riding, and food.  It would be nice if some real pickers and sangers showed up.

We'll have beer tasting, right...JOHN ALDERMAN??......Music, all y'all that play guitar, mandolin, banjo, etc...etc,,,


Alcohol is illegal so there will of course be nothing but soft drinks allowed. 

I will bring along a cigar box guitar or two.  I just hope your hearing is as poor as my playing. 

See you all there.

You're correct John Alderman, I'd confused this with March Moto Madness..... ::)

Bankhead Forest has more bugs than Talladega Forest, in my opinion.  Bring your bug repellent!

Just a busy time of year...Mothers Day vs. Brew Fest...... :-\

I'm actually working that Friday as well, but we'll go down Wednesday night and get several of the sites paid for so we can get our usual spots.

Going to sleep in the back of my SUV this time to reduce my exposure to the evil red bugs. Bringing lots of DEET as well.

Is there any chance you have a copy of the roll chart?

I would like to try to get an electronic version of the route to have in my phone!
