Thumbs up Naked bikes exploring..

My buddy (Moose) and I wanted to get some seat time today before hitting up Gymkhana at the Grove.

He is still feeling out the BKing, and I was itchin for some (non-work) saddle time.

I waited til the last minute (as always), and threw together a route on mapquest the night before.

Scribbled down some directions (my damn phone has shitty service in the boonies, so no GPS)...



We met up near the Jefferson / Blount line, and headed NE. Taking the route with the most curves possible...

Out through Palmerdale, Springville, over Pine Mt. Cut back East through Ashville, turned South below Rainbow City, and skirted the river.

Through Ragland and Pell City, Across Logan Martin 3 times, and back West down 25 into Leeds.

We hit some very nice roads (a couple not so nice --> CR33) ; and found some nice scenery...



This is on a little cut through called Walker Gap Rd. It is paved, although it has seen better days, but it has some curves that will have you checking out your own taillight...

Bear with me on this video.... its my first try at Windows movie maker...

This is that particular road...


All in all, a good day to ride. Ended up at gymkhana, and carved some cones...

Anyway, here is a map of our route, in case anybody wants to give it a try..

looks like a good time, thanks for sharing!
Gotta love some of those little barely two lane roads, always fun to explore.

Regarding you phone/gps. the gps signal should always be on. and you can get offline maps. I have finally found the solution to planning a route and having your phone navigate it.
explained

other useful tools are furkot.com - great for planning trips and has a built in export gpx function.
I'm going to post this all up in it's own thread, just thought i'd share since you mentioned it.
