June 26, 2019 - June 26, 2019
Address: 1820 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy Maryville, Tennessee 37801
One must ride the "Tail of the Dragon" at least once in a lifetime. US Route 129 at Deals gap is world famous for having 318 curves in 11 miles. Some say it is the curviest paved road in the world. This ride takes you down the Foothills Parkway to the Little Tennessee River, and then on to the Dragon. A stop at the "Crossroads of Time " at the end for lunch and photo opportunities. The ride goes the long way around and up and over the Great Smoky Mountains, past the Fontana Dam, Bryson City, Cherokee, Wears Valley, then back to EagleRider Smoky Mountain H-D – Knoxville Airport.
*This ride is on technical and demanding roads. Total concentration is needed. The corners are relentless and stamina and a modicum of experience will serve the rider well.
