Slate Creek Adventure Ride April 14th and 15th

April 14th and 15th is the best, and closest, opportunity to take part in one of the AMA Adventure Rides. Long time local racer/rider/promoter, and general good guy, John Strange is hosting this round, and has created 2 separate 150 mile loops which take you over some of the most beautiful country in East Tenn and Western North Carolina. Elevation changes from 1200' to 4300' keep things interesting, and route sheets are provided. The loops are a mixture of back roads, fire roads, and gravel roads which all start at Johns place in Bybee, which is just outside of Newport Tn. The ride is open to all adventure and dual sport bikes. Entry fee is only $60 for two days. For more info you can e-mail John at, call him at 865-322-0193, or download the flier at the Volunteer Riders website under "Events".
