CAC 4 in 1 Ride

CAC 4 in 1 Ride

On June 29, 5 members of Prairiethunder met the Central Arkansas H.O.G. chapter at Mena, Arkansas to join them for their 4 peaks in 1 day ride.  We started with a foggy ascent up the Talimena Drive to the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge then went on to visit Mt. Magazine, Mt. Nebo, and Petit Jean state park.  The highlight of the day was riding up Mt. Nebo.  The twisty road isn't very long but it is quite technically challenging to ride and a real thrill for us "flat-landers".  They call it "2 miles of wild" and it features 11 switchbacks and 18% grades.
