Hey all,

Please read below for a worthy cause to help out our mecca of roads...The Blue Ridge Parkway. All proceeds from the ride go to the BRP Foundation. Over $5000 was raised last year that went to improvements at their Graveyard Fields location. We hope to exceed that this year. It is a one day event on May 16, 2015,

with a social mixer at the BMW dealer on Friday night May 15th.

Thanks,

Jim

 

GENERAL INFO:

The Asheville BMW Riders in conjunction with Asheville's BMW Dealer, Eurosport Asheville, will hold its second annual Blue Ridge High Pass Boogie, a single day fund raiser for the

Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. Participants will enjoy scenic mountain vistas and the best motorcycling roads the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. You’ll enjoy a choice of 3 different routes. A long challenging 400+ mile pavement ride, plus the options of a shorter paved 200+ mile route, and a very interesting dual-sport loop for the adventure folks. Shortcuts will be available to allow more leisurely-paced riders to select a route that reduces mileage and ride time. This event will follow a loose rally format, although riders will receive directions for the entire route (including short-cut options) up front at check-in. Riders will then depart at their own pace and ride with others (if desired) in small groups according to their riding style or personal preference. The all-paved-road 400+ mile loop will take about 10 hours, the 200+ mile loop will take 4 to 6 hours, and the Dual-Sport (mixed pavement and gravel) will take 6 to 8 hours running at posted speed limits and allowing for fuel stops. Allowing for stops along the way, riders should have plenty of time to re-collect for a buffet dinner at (Wild Wings Cafe) Asheville . Participation includes a commemorative ride t-shirt, bike sticker, A Friday night mixer with PIZZA and BEVERAGES at (EUROSPORT ASHEVILLE), continental breakfast, catered dinner at Wild Wings Cafe with our own bike parking and private area, and many door prizes during dinner. Fuel, food, and rest facilities are readily available along the route. Lunch will be on your own. Please come and support the Blue Ridge Parkway. Registration can be made by visiting:
