The Dragon starts from Tapoco NC for 11mi - 318 turns

At the start of Dragon Tail small resort and shop with tees and other staff.

We can spend 1-2 hours there.

Suggested ride for May 22 (including Dragon Tail) 4-6 hours - 163 miles

May 23 Thursday. We will ride Cherohala Skyway. From Bryson City NC. to Tellico Plains TN.

80 mi, 2 hr

This day ride 220 mi – 4.5 hr (6hr with stops)

Shorter option 170 mi -4.5hr ???

I like first one, but for longer rides we need to start early around 9-10am. To come back before dark to motel.

May 24 Friday we are going home

Canada – 822 mi 13hr (15-16 with stops) (you will plan it)

NY – 772 mi, 12hr (15hr) to my house in SI.

Kot suggested that on the way back we will ride together to Harrisonburg, VA. about 405 mi 7-8 hr. stay there overnight and then go different directions Toronto & NY.

it’s up to Toronto guys. they have the longest ride home.

May 24 Friday

Bryson City NC to Harrisonburg

May 25 Saturday

Harrisonburg to Toronto: 514 mi, app 10-11 hr.

Harrisonburg to Staten Island: 340 mi app 7-8 hr

My assumption that we will stay in Robbinsville. If we stay other location mileage and rides time will change.

If any one can’t join us for the whole ride (6 days), they can do May 19 and May 20 with us ( to Roanoke VA) stay overnight with us and then go home on May 21. about 450 mi, 8-9 hr. - 3 days ride
