You can catch 61 from various locations off I-75. Go east thru Norris to 33 about 20 miles- good roads and the last part has some great swithch backs/90's. They rival all the big rides, just not as many. Rest of way is just nice riding.The other direction will take you to Devils Triangle thru Clinton and Oak Ridge. Pick up 62 to the 116 turn off. You can pick up 61 three easy ways out of the Knoxville area: I-75, 441/33 or 25/9 aka Clinton Highway.
