SE Region Beat The Summer Heat Rally 2018
« on: January 15, 2018, 04:47:47 pm »
For the second year, the SE region is going to host a summer rally so that everyone can escape the heat of the southern states.   Enjoy great weather and riding, and nights cool enough to get a comfortable night's sleep.  Temps last year were in the 80s during the say and 60s at night.

The registration price includes a pizza party on Saturday evening.  Ironhorse has a great kitchen on site, so no need to worry about meals.  There is also a choice of tent camping, campers, bunk houses, or private rooms, so we can meet everyone's needs.

see the Iron Horse website for details about prices.  Everyone covers their own costs except for Saturday night.

We had a TERRIFIC time last year, our hosts were great, and of course, the riding was as good as it gets east of the Mississippi!

Well said. I'm definitely going to invest a little time in this one. A few thousand feet in altitude made a HUGE difference last year. What a nice change. And who knew that watching a WIDE variety of bikes and strangers "slow race" would be so entertaining.   :motonoises:

I plan to be back. Maybe that road you took me on Jerry that was covered in water & trash will be clear this year. Can't remember the name, but seemed nice if you could see!

We will definitely try it again, it was the Wayah Road, known by many.  I may even give it a ride before the rally to see if the western end might be repaved instead of those friggin ruts.

Are reservations required now if you're camping? I haven't camped there in a few years.

it doesn't hurt to check, but there is always plenty of tent space.  the only reason to register with them is so they have an idea for food.  I will be discussing with them as we get closer, so not really a biggie there either.  I'll just tell them that anyone who has not already reserved a place will be camping.

Once they open for the season, I'll get more specific info and post it here.

They maybe closed but someone is monitoring their website.
I received email confirmation rooms are available, but need to call them to make the actual reservation.
I'll get this done then get registered.
