Gobbler's Knob Ride Report
November 12-The weather was perfect, about 70, not too bad for a November. We hit it pretty hard with the hill out of Harrison, and kept a pretty good speed 19-20 mph all the way to Cedar Grove. The Big Cedar Rd. portion is perfect; downhill, peaceful and beautiful. The Gobbler's knob hill is allways a killer. Sometimes I make it and sometimes I don't make it without stopping. Today was a day I didn't make it. The St. Peter's Rd. portion seemed to have a lot more gravel than usual (from recent course asphalt patches) which is a drag because it is a usually a great downhill run. All in all it was a great 38 mile ride followed by a cold one in the VFW parking lot.
