Talking Blue Ridge Adventure Ride

This is the link I found for the flyer
Dates are Sept 10/11 hosted at the nearly famous Pineola Inn {can be found if you search it}... I edit this later with phone number for the Inn not bad digs reasonable
I found this at another site some info for the event
Ron and crew have added a 4th route! This is primarily a big bike route.

The new route is 40 or so miles away with no single track or even many dirt roads. You will climb from 1500 ft up to right turn on a 14 mile single lane dirt road that parallels the Appalachian Trail running along the TN, NC line. First up to 3000 ft for a overlook to Tn. , then up to 5000 ft to a overlook into NC. Back down to 3000′ on great back roads blacktop, then back up to 6200 ft. Best for 690 for 1190 adventure bikes.

Ron Miller and crew are back at it again with the 2016 edition of the Blue Ridge ADV Ride! Miles of back country gravel roads snake alongside the Blue Ridge peaks and hollows, and just enough pavement to connect them. With any luck, the route will include what I call the Gravel Dragon, 22 miles of uninterrupted twists and turns! All proceeds benefit the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. While a minimum donation of $50 is asked, I’m sure they will take more…what the hey…going to a great cause! September 10th and 11th, centered in Pineola NC.

Enough of this talking/typing crap I'm going riding
