Western North Carolina is endowed with some of the greatest motorcycle rides in all of America. It hosts a beautiful diversity of inspiring scenery. People from all walks of life are drawn to the seducing curves of the Dragon at Deal’s Gap, also known as US Hwy 129. They make their pilgrimage to test their skills, or in some cases, to be bitten by the Dragon.
Other motorcycle rides include the Blue Ridge Parkway, and southern access to The Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
