    TAT route and schedule

    I've just about finalised the route and mileage now so here it is

    The container will be in Knoxville on Thursday so if anyone wants to come in earlier that's fine because there is some great riding to be had in the area.

    Just a note, Deals Gap was shut due to rock slides when we were there in July but I believe it's sorted now. However, there are some unbelievable roads around the area so you will not be bored and the locals will love being buzzed by a bunch of Brits on knobbly tyres

    Trans America Trail Route 2011

    Day 1 Saturday Collect bikes from Container and check over. Overnight in Knoxville Tennessee
    Day 2 Sunday Ride to Deals Gap and ride the Dragons Tail. 318 curves in 11 miles and one of the most famous roads in the USA, Mileage 150 and same motel in Knoxville. Tarmac

    If you use Google Earth and zoom in you can just see Gary giving blow jobs to a bunch of cowboys, further east he's squealing like a pig

    Getting There

    Well had a few hours spare yesterday so I am now booked on BA flight to NY on the 4th. Doing something a bit unusual by getting the Greyhound down to Knox. After 17 hours and several towns and cities later arrive at 5pm on the 5th ready to pick up the bike on the Saturday.

    Getting back a bit of a drag though, no direct flights through to NY from ABQ so got to change.

    I will be flying straight back on the Saturday and should arrive back in the UK on the Sunday morning.

    Only six and a half months to go
