So here we are in 2008, it's time for us to start planning our 2008 Spring ride. So let's see who's interested...

The Plan:

Lodging: We will stay in Maggie Valley NC for 2 or 3 nights, we are planning on staying at the Smokty Falls Lodge for all nights, Betty Boop is currently checking rates, if they fill there are more places to stay near by so please get signed up soon!!

As for the riding we will have a TON of riding options available...


The Cherohala Skyway

The Dragon/Deals Gap

The Smokey Mountains


The Blue Ridge Parkway

Wayah Road

State Highway 28

And these are just a few, we can plan the routes out as time goes by but this will give everyone a good idea of where we will be at/staying/riding. This will be a rain or shine ride unless SEVERE weather is going to be a danger.

_________________________________UPDATE__________________________

We will meet at the Handee Mart in Cleveland SC at noon Friday the 23rd for any coming from the south. Map here.

For those in the Charlotte area or those coming from the north area we will meet at my work in Charlotte at Medic like last year at 9am. Map here

I have always been on the "right" coast. But then I call it the RIGHT coast as opposed to the WRONG coast which is not the right coast. :stirpot:
