4 days, 5 good friends and plenty of awesome riding!
Our group usually does an annual Mothers day ride each year to Northern Arkansas. (Last years write up) This year the schedule did not work out so we had to push it back a couple of weeks.
We finally got things worked out and the plans were set. We decided to stay at the same place we do every year. Mountain View RV Park is a nice little place and the owner of the location is an all around nice guy.
Thursday May 17th We decided to hit the road around 6:30am. Rob and Stephen met me at our regular Starbucks to start the day. My wife also joined us before she headed off to school and a day of teaching our youth. We were meeting Jackie in Paris Texas at Nancy’s cafe for breakfast at 8am. I got a text from Richard on Monday asking if we were still headed to Arkansas. He said that he was getting a new toy and would ride up after he got off work on Friday afternoon. Richard introduced us to all of these great roads and he is always fun to have on a trip. We were looking forward to seeing his new toy as well.
The rest of the day was pretty easy, the weather warmed up and by the time we made it to the hotel, the temperature had reached the low 90’s. We did the quick Subway for dinner and I think we were all in bed by 9pm. We are some wild and crazy guys.
Friday May 18th We woke up to a morning of sunshine and temps in the low 60’s. We headed over to the little town of Fifty Six and our usual breakfast place named Cody’s.
We like this location as it is only 14 miles from our favorite place in Arkansas – Push Mountain Road. We ride it up and back at a pretty spirited pace. The road is laid out perfectly and the pavement is top notch. the cool thing is the lack of car / truck traffic. It is almost a non factor. Makes for some fun fast runs.
