Dodging the Roadkill: Riding Into Fall

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Living in Tennessee presents very distinct seasons.  Our winters are cold, our springs are filled with storms and tornadoes, our summers are the epitome of heat and humidity, but then there’s the fall.

SWEET GLORIOUS FALL!

Without question, this is my favorite time of the year.  It always has been, even before I became a biker.  But I never thought the fall would be so fabulous until I started riding.  

I absolutely LOVE getting out early in the morning, hitting the coffee shop, then taking off with no particular destination in mind.  Temperatures in the mid fifties to low seventies are the absolute best.

Dodging the Roadkill: Mammoth Cave National Park

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCentral Kentucky – On a recent trip to Northern Kentucky, I decided to take a quick “ride through” of Mammoth Cave National Park.  I had passed by it several times on previous trips, but had never ventured off to see it first hand.  If you’re a biker, (and you probably are) you HAVE to ride this magnificent park.

Mammoth Cave National Park is located just of Interstate 65 at exit 48, (the Park City exit), that turns onto Ky-255.  It turns into Park City Road that joins Mammoth Cave Parkway.  

The park is a U.S National Park that encompasses portions of Mammoth Cave, which is the longest cave system in the world.  The park’s 52,830 acres are located in Edmonson County Kentucky and is centered on the Green River.
