Thnaks for the heads-up, Jeff!

I planned on riding through that part of the East around then. I will seriously consider building my spring run around this destination. -Capt

Not too sure. I've been wanting to do the ride for a few years, now, but always have something else going on. My wife is riding her own bike, now, and doesn't care much for groups, so if we have a bike riding vacation available, I think she'd prefer to do something else, but......I may talk her into it.....we just need a babysitter for the weekend.

Funny I actually stayed at that Quality Inn on my way back from the "Dragon" a few years back. Alas, not enough vacation time , my bike trip this year is the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec.

Yeah, sort of, I had already made my plans and then my Cycle World showed up with that article in it. Gives me a few pointers on places to stay. Though I will have two of my riding buddies with one of whom being of French Canadian descent speaks fluent "French" or Canadian version thereof so that will help.

Hate I'm going to miss that - since I live in North Carolina - but I'll be riding in the Pyrenees. ;)

Hey John,

The club provides sodas and pizza at the Hotel on the Friday evening, a diner with door prizes on the Saturday night and you get a tshirt. Come on out! We have a very relaxing and fun time. I get to ride a bunch of roads that are too far from here for a day ride. We talk $hit, kick bike tires and drink beers in the parking lot in the evenings. If the weather is going to be good, we could hook up and ride there and back together. What do you think Butch?:) I know that Marvin will make the trip.

Rick and butch,

So are you planning on staying on Mt Airy for the weekend or commuting back and forth to Asheville?

If either of you are interested in staying in Mt Airy, let me know.

I may just ride up Saturday morning and join in on the fun.

Thanks

Don't go off the edge of the road and watch out for cattle and cattle grates..

Oh and and have fun.

R1200GS! I've been on the TDI route in the Alps! Can't believe people actually ride bicycles through that.

I'm envious. Beautiful part of the country you folks have. Was down there probably about 5-6 yrs. ago and met some great people for a few day rides.

Seems like the Blue Ridge can be a bit too tempting for serious corner carving. If it wasn't for our litigious ways, I'd say it's ripe for an Isle of Man stage. :D
