Hi Folks,

We've been having some pretty terrific weather here in the Mid-Atlantic lately. We're guessing more and more of you up north will be turning your attention to riding and ride planning soon as the weather warms.

We're going to be posting information about the area's best attractions ... i.e., THE ROADS ... in this thread.
The routes will be posted in the not too distant future.

THE SMOKY MOUNTAIN SWEET SIXTEEN:

There are nearly countless great roads within a 75-mile radius of Fontana Village Resort. In fact, we think the entire region rocks for sport-touring! And because it RAWKS so hard, we’ve chosen a “rock concert” theme for BMWST UnRally XVI 2017. In commemoration of UN XVI, your hosts have identified 16 roads we believe to be the must-see roads. We’ve dubbed them, “The Smoky Mountain Sweet 16." They are listed in the graphic below (by rough proximity to Fontana Village Resort):

Frank Cheek of T.W.O used to call this loop the "Cooler Run". Approximately 37 miles, with hundreds of turns. Run it clockwise, then turn around and run it again counterclockwise.
