Red Boiling Springs 2023

RBS 2023 IS IN THE BOOKS! If you missed it there is always next year. We started out on Friday Oct 20th with 13 riders but unfortunately a broken spoke sent "purple bike Mike G." home early; too bad "MacGyver Bruce" or "MacGyver" Ed wasn't along. Weather was perfect, food was good, fire pit was good, routes were good, but most of all the company and fellowship with great friends was amazing and always the weekend highlight! Without participation this 3 day ride is not possible, thanks to all that attended and helped with the planning. Special thanks to Traci and Mike Short for providing the vehicle and hauling bags and coolers to RBS and back! Everything else can be a mess and tolerable but without our bags and coolers its a "crap show." Thank you Traci and Mike!

Between all riders appox 2,000+ miles and 81,000+ feet of elevation was ridden (not sure how many miles Tony rode around the rest stop store on Sunday :). 
Dates are tentative for 2024,  October 18th, 19th and 20th.

Saturday Morning Ride **Caution - Greenhorn Ride Lead**

With our fearless ride leaders AWOL, I have planned a couple of routes for Saturday morning (yes Woody, I completely avoided Dobbins Pike!).  With a start-time temp forecasted to be 47F, this will be our first chance to test our cool weather gear for the fall!  No worries, it's supposed to be a balmy 57F by the end!

Start time: 8:00 from the Gallatin Civic Center


Bike Index is the most widely used and successful bicycle registration service in the world with over 1,146,000 cataloged bikes, 1,580 community partners and tens of thousands of daily searches.
