Motorcycle Tour of Nantahala, Dillsboro, and Asheville.

This week's ride covered over 850 miles in three days.

Riding from NOC's campus I followed the Nantahala River upstream. I saw a few of my pals at Ferebee Park during a brief stop. Afterwards continued upstream to the Nantahala Cascades; along the way I passed several motorcyclists and a couple I knew. The cascades include several significant drops but a few are hard to photograph. I took another brief break at Nantahala lake before taking a scenic ride to Dillsboro. I enjoyed a great buffalo burger at Dillsboro just a block away from their lowhead dam slated for removal.

Next I rode to Dirty Jack's in downtown Asheville on Buxton Avenue. I enjoyed sipping the belgian abbey while I visited Dirty Jack's. Next I visited the Frend Broad Brewing Company near Biltmore; they have many great brews including Wee Heavy-er. While visiting the Frend Broad Brewing Company my good friend Mark Lyons of the Asheville Brews Cruise brought a group to tour the brewery. Finally my last stop in Asheville was Bruisin Ales as specialty beer store owned by Jason and Julie. This trip I noticed Brusin' Ales had live music in addtion to a selection of beer than cannot be beat.
