We ARE having TriSTAR in 2019, ya' know. Come on down and get a jump on riding in the area. You won't have time to do all of the routes at STAR.



Yes, I have seen the TriSTAR info. Been thru Sparta many times, really great roads in the area. Sparta's about 1.5 hrs from home so I am looking forward to going.

Some of my favorite roads will be on the agenda for Bristol
- US421 (Shady Valley to Mountain City) - the Snake
- the road into Shady Valley (TN133, starts in Damascus)
- US58 from Volney to Damascus (don't think this has a name)
Plus the Roan Mountain area, Banner Elk, and more. Hmm, could VA80 be on the list, did that one in the rain at Johnson City STAR and have used it on return from Sparta a few times. I'm sure the route masters are having lots of fun with the possibilities.

These are roads that are also part of the routes used at the fabulous Tri-STAR event held in Sparta NC on Memorial Day weekend. I haven't ridden in that area in a few years and really enjoy it.

Sure if only I were both independently wealthy and retired :)

But seriously those two events are too close together in time and area for me to attend both. Plus a work conference the week before STAR. Maybe next year.
