Guy Ride 2000


Blairsville - Suches - Neel's Gap - Helen - Blairsville

After checking into the Seasons Inn, we took back roads to Suches and the TWO (Two Wheels Only) Campground.  Then US-19 over Neel's Gap with a stop on the way back at the Appalachian Trail crossing.  Not ready to stop riding for the day, we took SR-180 by Brasstown Bald, the highest mountain in Georgia.  At the intersection with SR-17 we turned south to the city of Helen, a German-flavored city transplanted into north Georgia.  On the return trip, we rode SR-348 to US-19 and back to Blairsville..... a tired but happy group.  

First stop was the TWO Campground, a motorcycles only camp near Suches, Georgia   It's a favorite stopping place for bikers riding the twisties around Suches.  Here Ricky, Rooster, Pat, and Brent take a break and watch bikers arrive at the campground.

Tim savors a Diet Coke after a hot ride.

Tim, Ricky, Rooster and Pat share thoughts about the Suches ride.

Brent takes in the TWO Campground.

Pat's mischievous grin says something's up at the Neel's Gap rest stop.

Ricky and Brent enjoy a drink at Neel's Gap.  The store is a stopover for hikers on the Appalachian Trail and bikers.  There is a constant flow of interesting people passing through.  

Rooster contemplates the Suches and Neel's Gap ride and perhaps the lack of sleep Friday night at Linda's.
