March 9, 2009 by · Comments Off 

There’s fire in the mountains June 5-8, 2009, as motorcycles rumble into Fontana Village for the Dam Bike Ralley at The Dragon. Bikers arrive from near and far for this big party held  in western North Carolina.

Of course it’s not just the great food, live music, poker run, and vendors that call to riders. It’s the need to ride some of the most exciting roads in the country.

Slay the Dragon’s 318 curves in 11 miles on US-129. Cruise the incredible Hellbender 28, running for 30 miles along Fontana Lake and the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Run the mile high Cherohala Skyway for sweeping curves and breathtaking views.

After a great day of riding, head back to Fontana Village to share stories and enjoy the festivities of this premiere motorcycle rally in the Great Smoky Mountains.
