June 23 - 24, 2006

Ride Coordinator: John Wynes

It's over... a great time was had by all. Andy took a some great pictures, they can be seen at: http://www.mctourer.com/rides/2006SMR/Photos/Index.html

The 2006 Summer Mountain Ride will again be held in Bryson City, NC along with Andy's Smoky Mountain Rough Road Ride.

You'll have a couple options for planning your weekend: Join us in Bryson City Thursday evening or meet us in Helen, Georgia on Friday.

We'll be heading out from Bryson City Friday morning to enjoy some great roads on the way to Helen, a picturesque Bavarian Alpine village in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia. After spending a couple hours sampling the schnitzel, wandering through the shops, and watching the armada of tubers floating through town on the Chattahoochee River we head north for dinner. After a brief stop to listen for banjos at the Chattooga Gorge we continue on to Sylva, NC, where we'll meet up with the Rough Road riders for dinner at the historic Jarrett House.

Ride headquarters will again be the Ridgetop Motel & Campgrounds in Bryson City, NC. The owners of the Ridge Top, Ron and Darlene Pickett, offer our group a great rate ($50 for one bed, $55 for 2 beds, campsites also available) and enjoy having motorcycle riders stay at their motel/campground. Be sure and mention the the MTF Summer Mountain Ride when you call for your reservation. Make your reservations early. Motels in this area fill up fast at $100+ rates.
