Well, to follow up my Tail of the Dragon ride, today I took a day trip and rode the Suches Loop, sometimes called the Georgia Dragon. It's a day trip out of of Atlanta. You can see the ride on the map in the photos. There were only a few riders out today. It was cool, and a great riding day! EXCEPT for about 2 miles of it!! When you travel Hwy 180 from Suches to Hwy 129, you go through the Cherokee National Forest (very scenic) and you get to about 3400 ft at the top! Well the top is not exactly like it was for the rest of the ride! If anyone is planning on riding this, best wait a bit! Check out the photos and see what I'm talking about. I hope you enjoy the pictures! Picasa Web Albums - Chet - Suches Loop D... . .
