Dodging the Roadkill: Bald Knob Cross

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – It’s only fitting that on the day that millions of Christians celebrate their faith and the sacrifice that was made for them for all eternity, I share the story of Bald Knob Cross.  You can read the history at the link I’ve provided. 

I was made aware of this magnificent structure from one of my followers of this blog.  Just another reason I LOVE the people I meet on this bike.  

While I have ridden the Ozarks, in both Missouri and Arkansas, I’ve never been to Alto Pass Illinois, or this magnificent structure.  Here’s the video.  

The Christian Motorcycle Association sponsors their annual “Blessing of the Bikes” here each year, drawing thousands of bikers from all over the country.  This years event is April 29th.
