 hey Biosis much respect for the props I appreciate it. Just spreading Jah love throughout the cycling community. The starting spot has a ton of history surrounding it. My trailhead has been the site of the Jamaican Fatta Tyre Festival 1999-2005 and everything from a disco that burnt down in the 70s to the Whitehall's Great House, also known as the "Spice House" where Dr. Whitehall ruled with an iron fist in one hand with a whip in the other. A slave master who was not liked by locals this tale is told.....
"Apparently, Mr. Parkinson wanted to be buried on the property with all his gold and jewels and shortly after his burial, his grave was desecrated and vandalized and his body left out to be consumed by scavengers. Mr. Parkinson was not well liked by his neighbors or the slaves that worked on his plantation and was known to frequently tie those who disobeyed him to a "prickle" tree and whip them as punishment."
This gives me closure as I felt guilty as 3 years ago i tagged his walls as my trailhead.
