Riding Tennessee: Clarksville to Lafayettte

This is from a collections of rides that we made to ride to every   County Seat and courthouse in Tennessee.

This ride through North Middle Tennessee will not disappoint.  The rolling hills on the approach to the Cumberland Plateau are spectacular.  We leave Clarksville ride the 20 miles to Springfield Tennessee where we catch Highway 25 for the ride to Gallatin.

We have lunch in the Sumner County Square at across from the Courthouse.  In the courthouse square with a plaque that is dedicated to the first Tennessee blacks to enlist in the Union Army during the Civil War  It was a nice surprise to find a genuine Cajun restaurant called Crescent City Po Boys.   This place is worth a trip all by itself. After some gumbo and an Oyster Po Boy it was time to ride.  Leaving Gallatin we continue on Tennessee Highway 25.  Past Hartsville then turn north on Tennessee Highway 10.

This incredible road that leads to Lafayette though the foothills of the Cumberland Plateau. It is hard to put into word motorcycle riding on and around the Cumberland Plateau.  It is one of the many reason I live in Tennessee.
