Asheville, NC - PBTF Ride for Kids

If you are in the NC mountains this weekend Aug 29th, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is holding a ride from Asheville to Lake Lure. The minimum cost is $35. See link below for details. From what I understand, it is a fully escorted ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway and then down Hwy 74 (twisty) to Lake Lure/Chimney Rock. Its supposed to be a beautiful weekend and a pretty large ride.

I posted this in the rides section too. But thought I would share with my 900 Brothers & Sisters too.

Sounds great, hope I can make it up. I'm going to try to line up the baby sitting since I'm fortunately off this weekend, I'd love to participate.

It was a great ride this weekend. There were right at 400 bikes involved and they raised about $117,000 for the charity. No crashes, no mechanical failures, no rain. God was looking out for us. Oh yeah, and I thought drugs were supposed to be addictive. I am now hooked on the twistys. Already planning to go back up in October with some buddies. Only because we have no free weekends in September. Wishing I lived in the mountains now.
