OR, trying something different, below are the offered RWGPS map and elevation images.
|I prefer the look of the map gotten via the above link.|
Although the pix at Denny's Store x-roads make for fine to excellent photos,
I thought I'd do something different.
|Denny Cemetery. About a quarter-mile before the Denny's Store x-roads.|
Cruising down Culbreth Rd, I thought to stop and take a photo of the Shoofly sign.
I think Shoofly was originally a railroad whistle stop (but I haven't researched the issue).
The RR tracks are long gone.
Actually, a lot of NC RR tracks were pulled up long ago.
The RR roadbeds are still visible -- if one knows where to look, and what to look for.
Shoofly Don't Bother Me" course that I created in 2007.
It has been a favorite route of some of the Irregulars.
It is also a favorite of mine, but I've never actually ridden the course as mapped / cue sheeted.
I think I rode the route three times -- each time with a different variation.
Ha -- just remembered -- the first time I rode a version of the Shoofly --
That would have been Sep-22-2007 --
It became the longest ride I'd ever done.
The following Saturday, I did my first ever 100-miler.
On a 109-mile version of the Virginia Border Raid.
Anyway, as you might have guessed from the above photos,
Sep-14-2013 in central NC was a GREAT day to have gone for a bike ride.
That's my story, and I'll be sticking to it.
