    Anyone riding in this? I have done it for several years. It's pretty amazing.

    Finally, after over ten years of planning and canceling this great ride...I will be doing it (2012 ride). I am of Chickamauga/Creek ancestry and will finally have me little card what says so.
    I can't do the eight state ride, though maybe next year..hmm.I'm so looking forward to at least doing the Chattanooga to Florence ride. As I am retired in North Mississippi...back here with my ancestors...just the 200 miles will be a great accomplishment for me. I can return home, a half mile from the Natchez Trace, where about 80,000 People of the Earth were rounded up to join the walk to Oklahoma, and then ride down to my Great Great Grandmother's resting place {Sarah Bull} just 80 miles south of my house...just on the other side of the Trace.
    How apropos for me...I will soon be 63, a time for the circle to be completed.
