Meet a REAL HILLBILLY!!!

Hello Guys and Gals! My name is Ron and I'm an offical senior hillbilly pedal pusher! I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee and have been riding all my life, well most of the 57 years anyway. I have a 2001 Giant OCR roadie and a couple of mountain bikes, one comfort cruiser and 3 vintage 10 speeds. Any how, glad I found this place and look forward to making friends, and sharing ideas and experiances with you folks.

Ron

Welcome aboard! My inlaws are from Sevierville and Gatlinburg, so I married into the hillbilly clan.

Reagans have second place to the Ogles and the Huskeys come in third around Greenbrier. I'm a Martin from the Maryville side.

Oh right, how could I forget about the Huskeys and Regans? Smathers are actually from the NC side. Welcome, and keep riding those hills!

What trails start at the Gatlinburg side of the Park? I'll have to bring my bike the next time I come thru. Gatlinburg is my favorite place.
