Ralizing that some of you may have never been to the area before, I thought I'd throw up some pictures of Helen, the hotel and the roads ...

Recognize many of those roads and locations.

However, where is that bridge located?

If you've ridden there a lot, I promise you've ridden over that bridge. Probab;ly just don't recognize it.

It's south of Deal's Gap on Route 28 at the Dam, just before you get to Fontana Village.

Ah yea, that bridge...for some reason squids like to pass you near that bridge and end up under a car fender :poke

Not sure if I'm going that far north on this trip, although 28 is a pretty kick ass road!

I will probably head up to 28S and ride near Bryson Shitty and come back through franklin and whatnot. Depends on if I can find a bojangles to cure an impending hangover.

28 from about Bryson (Citgo / Conoco station at 28 & 74) to just north of Franklin is my all time favorite road down there. Not the best surface in the world, but little traffic and the sweepers are fun as Hell .

Edit: This gas station on 28 @ 19/74. Was a Citgo, then a Conoco, dunno what it is now...

It's across the street (Rt. 74) from the cemetary on the hillside.
