Hello, hope you’re is a great and if it isn’t get on your bike and ride. This week I will give you the information about the 3rd ride in the Southern Dozen Rides. Places Of The Past Ride 66 miles. Take in sweeping pastures and twist the throttle as you race around curves and tight switchbacks on this journey into the past to discover Northeast Tennessee’s epic history. From the volunteers who saved the American Revolution, to the homes of legendary pioneers, statesmen, and even a U.S. President, this region is rich in memories of the past. Venture down cobblestone streets to the birthplace of Davy Crockett, past extraordinary museums, and even to a farm preserved since 1791.
