Change of route. I think I have a doctor's appointment that morning. My first 30 mile leg will have to be to that. But I've been told there's a beautiful road from there down to Sparta, 10% grades and very twisty.

Hope we can all do this. Our governor has issued a stay-at-home dictum, but I think it's only enforced in the cities.
He also said that cycling is okay. I think he was talking about pedal bikes, but I can always tell the cops that he said it was okay to be on a bike.

Now there is an excellent idea.
Then a few days later the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride on Sunday 27th, which I hope to do again.

I'm still OK to go, the rules are just flexible enough to justify a sole outing where you don't come in contact with anyone.

What a lovely ride I had today. Except for the wrong turn detour of about 15 miles of gravel road through the wildlife management area. I kept expecting to hear banjos at any moment, so I kept riding.
I came out of the wilderness in Wartburg. I had planned to go through there on my original plan, but not via that route. Fueled up and headed south on US 27 down to US 70. Nice road from there to Ozone (yes, that's a real town.) I stopped to see Ozone Falls on the same creek as the falls in my last ride post, but about 50 miles north. It takes a real hillbilly or a trials rider to get to the bottom of the falls.
From there I rode over past Crab Orchard and cut over on Cox Valley Rd to highway 68 and home.
An overall excellent ride. 100th day, 111 years, unknown mileage, Mr Jim only has a tach and an OP gauge.

Nice pickies Dave.
Glad you enjoyed the ride.
We are in for of lockdown at the moment so rides through the bush are a no no.
Funny how you miss things.
I live on a popular motorcycling road west of Sydney and it is usuall for several hundred riders to come past in groups of varying sizes from dawn to dusk.
No a single bike passed by all day .

Me @63 + the Norton @46 = 109. Yesterday, 9 April was wet & windy with falling temps. I rode the bike

Sunday, (40 some-odd miles) 5th April
Tuesday (over 100 miles) 7th April
Thursday (another roughly 40 miles ride) 8th April

So I missed the 100/100/100 ride, BUT did the 100/97/100 instead.
Since I already posted these over in Steve's thread, I'll limit this post to a single photo: The Norton atop Waggoner's Gap aka PA route 74, 1400+ feet above sea level, north of the town of Carlisle.

Hope everyone is doing well, staying safe, and keeping themselves healthy!

Once again, LIFE got in the way (as well as Covid-19 and construction project), so no 100-100-100 ride this year.

Great pix guys...

.

Thanks for taking me along on your ride and thanks to Google Maps I was mostly able to follow you.

These are the only banjos I heard today
