First Event of the New Year - Ride to Roan Mountain

The first event of the year (at least the first I know of) is coming up January 2nd. The "Ride to the Roan" has been happening the first Sunday in January for 74 years! Hosted by Jim's Motorcycle Sales in Johnson City, the ride leaves out of the shop at 1:00, and everyone proceeds to the top of Roan Mountain (or at least as close as they can get) at their own pace. They have this deal where you guess at the amount of time it will take you to get to the checkpoint, and prizes are given out to the top 5.  On the way back everyone stops back by the shop for Pizza, courtesy of Jim's Motorcycles. I've never been able to make this ride before, but people who have say its a real fun time. If you do make it, send us a picture of you and your bike at the top of the mountain and we'll post it!
