TWO and Cherohala. Let's Ride!

We woke up without the alarm clock. The birds singing and the sunlight creeping into the tent was our wake up on this beautiful Sunday. We were going to take a ride down to Suches GA and have some lunch at the Two Wheels Only Campground. The route included TN 68 and it was an amazing way to start the riding day. Plenty of great curves, awesome views and fantastic pavement. It was a great way to start our day. But first off, we started by eating breakfast at the Town Square Cafe & Bakery. The food was decent, a little greasy for our liking but not bad. The owner was very friendly and it was not a bad experience. 




We took off out of Tellico Plains and headed down 68. So many curves and such a great route. We got the Two Wheels Only around 11am. They were hosting 150 adventure bikes so the place was buzzing with activity. Jamie and I had a snack and hung out for a hour of so. We enjoyed all of the motorcycle talk and getting to see all of the bikes coming and going. It is one of my favorite places. They have updated the facility since our last visit. This is a good thing. Next time we will need to camp here and enjoy more of the area. 











We took off from TWO and headed down to the first right we hit. This is the famous wolf pen gap road. It has plenty of curves with some awesome scenery thrown in. We headed up to Robbinsville. We wanted to do some of Wayah road before heading over the Cherohala packway to the camp site. We stopped at the Hub in Robbinsville NC. It was a cool place and not a bad stop along the route. 






After lunch we headed back to Tellico Plains over one of my favorite roads from this area. I love the Cherohala and we rode it a number of times over the next 5 days. I will let some of the pictures try and show you all the fun and beauty of this road. It is a wonderful stretch of roadway. 





We will have plenty of more pictures from the Cherohala later in this ride report. We made it back to the campsite around 3pm. We got comfortable and then took the top off the jeep and hit the road. Our destination was bald River Falls. We actually got to drive some forest roads while enjoying the cooler temps. It is one of the reasons we bought our Jeep and it did not disappoint.
