Cherahola Skyway Run

My friend, Huck and I rode the Cherohala Skyway last Saturday. Both of us on Yamaha SuperTenere 1200cc ADV bikes.

Perfect day out for a ride and the crisp cool temps towards the top of the Skyway. Put in a 300 mile round trip from Northern Atlanta. Up via Blairsville, GA and back down from Tellico Plains, through Blue Ridge, GA and backroads around Ballground, GA. A Tri-state ride. Started in GA, north into North Carolina, and then westwards crossing over into Tennessee on the Skyway and then back south into Georgia.

It’s been 2 years since Huck and I put in a ride together. A last minute planned route and the perfect weather made for a nice long day’s ride. Especially the crisp cool temps as we climbed up to 5400ft elevation.
