“During World War II, Tuskegee and Tuskegee Institute were also home to the famed Tuskegee Airmen. This was the first squadron of African-American pilots trained in the U.S. Military for service in that war.”

This was a very hot ride, JOM was glowing

In this video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew conducts a brief tour of downtown Tuskegee, Alabama, before heading into the Tuskegee National Forest and beyond. Towns visited along the route include Loachapoka and Notasulga, Alabama, with a visit towards the end of the video to Moton Field. Because some private property was inadvertently traversed, there will be no map course from JOM’s ride experience video at this time. Sorry!
