This route starts at the Goose and Monkey, a brewery in Lexington, North Carolina, and travels along side the Norfolk Southern railroad corridor through the town of Spencer and ending in Salisbury, NC. This course passes several fields with cotton in bloom and utilizes a railroad service access road through the train yard of Linwood. Lexington is well-known for it’s distinctly flavoured barbecued pork and is the home of the annual Barbecue Festival which draws about 150,000 visitors each year. Wandering Pig is a hazy IPA beer whose namesake pays homage to Lexington's famous barbecue.
We sampled the IPA at the brewery and enjoyed some pizza prior to filming the ride back to Salisbury. We felt like wandering pigs on the trip back home.
