Silver Coment

I’ve got a not-so-secret desire to some day ride the Silver Comet Trail end-to-end (all the way into Alabama) on my bicycle. The problem I have is that for as long as I have known about the Silver Comet it has been “under construction” with a “to be completed soon” schedule.

    Well, when do you plan on dying?

    In my experience, bike trails never get finished. Ever.

    Apropos of almost nothing, I rode from Florence, Alabama to Hohenwald, Tennessee this past Saturday on the Natchez Trace. If you’ve never ridden the Trace, I highly recommend it. A very smooth road with almost zero traffic, and what few cars/motorcycles there are almost always move to the far lane to pass. And it is quite beautiful out there.

    I think that I have at least a few more riding years in me.

    Sounds like a great ride. I might have to look into it. Thanks.

    Ask and you shall receive:

    Sounds like the completed trail is a ways off but at least they are actively building parts of it now.
