We have planned another Mountain Roads Ride, this time it's located near Asheville and Brevard.
Saturday, April 25, 2015
Meet by 9:30am
, plan to head out on the trails at 10:00am
Start & End location
: Ingles Grocery Store, 863 Brevard Road
(NC 191), Asheville, NC 28806 which is near Exit 33 off of I-26/US-74
There is a traffic light at grocery store entrance to help you find your way. This will be a good starting place because they have a large parking lot, restrooms, snacks, beverages, etc and a Citgo gas station is next door.
All vehicles are welcome. We will be driving a mixture of paved and gravel roads, traveling up to 55 mph on pavement, but typically under 45. Some gravel roads are quite rough so having at least moderate clearance would be best. All Jeeps will be fine. Bring tools, fluids and others supplies as needed for your vehicle. Occasionally some of the Forest Service roads that we plan to travel will be closed for maintenance, so we may have to adjust our route. Know your vehicle’s fuel needs. The entire trip will be less than 100 miles, about half are gravel.
Your accommodations before and after the day’s events are your responsibility. For those of you traveling far or wanting to make a full weekend of this, there are several hotels near this grocery store, and places to camp a little further out of town.
Plan to spend most of daylight hours on the drive.
What to bring:
-snacks and a lunch as there are not many options for food services along our route. The grocery store at our meeting spot will be your best bet for a variety of food and other supplies on our trip
-footwear for short hikes if you choose to participate
-a camera, as we will see some beautiful scenery
Restrooms can be 2 hours drive apart, closer together as day wears on.
RSVP here so that I can get a head count. I will print driving directions for our route.
