Where abouts is the Tennessee valley located? I'm in the Carroll Co. area of W. Tenn. & we've got some great twisty/hilly back roads to ride as well. Middle Tennessee has a really cool organized ride called "the dirt devil" that is mostly gravel, very scenic & several water crossings. The water crossings can be very slippery but, the VV is so low you can just dab a foot under water (if you need to) & avoid flopping over on your side in the water.
Free speech is literally No.1 on the list of beliefs that make us Americans. NOTHING is more offensive to a true American than censorship.
