Dodging the Roadkill: Bank Robbery

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – On Thanksgiving morning, I saddled up on my big black horse to take a ride before all the family get togethers. It was a crisp, but sunny morning, so I decided to take off on a route that takes me through parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. 

I ride down Highway 79, then turn on state route 848.  From there, I pick up highway 102 to highway 25.  That takes me to highway 431 where I ride through Adairville KY, then on to Russellville, KY where today’s story takes place. 

I’ve been riding all up through here for years, and if I’m just looking to get a few hours of “wind” therapy, it’s one of my “go to” routes, and in all my years of living and riding in this area, I NEVER knew that a famous bank robbery occurred here, by one of the most notorious gangs in American history.
