In fact, I have ridden through there and quite by accident
Looking through pictures I see that it was January 2015 when I was exploring Lowndsboro and other areas and a wrong turn put me on the dirt road.
There was a report of the ride in general on the old site, but it focused on Lowndesboro and the historic homes in the area. However, I did post some video footage of the ride.
The stretch of buildings begins at 4:09 into the video.
The little road had more traffic than I would have expected and I wondered if I could get to the river from there. Now that I am on my larger bike, I don't know that I would go any further than I did previously, but I know nothing of the area so I appreciate the article.
