Big Lynn Lodge Ride (Road, ADV)
July 13-16, 2023
Little Switzerland, North Carolina
Picking up from Dave Brickner’s past decade plus of hosting this event, Chris Parker is now the event coordinator. What’s changed? Nothing! Same location, same setup, same price! What is so great about the Big Lynn Lodge (BLL) Ride? First is location. The Big Lynn Lodge is located on a mountain ridge right next to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a few miles south of Spruce Pine, North Carolina. It is one of the most beautiful settings you will find for a place to stay. There are fantastic roads in every direction from the doorstep of the lodge. Second is “social dining.” Every guest has breakfast and dinner included with their room and everyone dines together for both meals. Food is healthy and tasty with soft drinks and desserts, which include homemade pies. Third, this area has some exceptional technical routes, both pavement and dirt, created by Doug Pippin. They are some of the best you will ride anywhere, ever. As if all of that is not enough, there will be entertainment on Friday night. Almost Vintage will play out on the back porch. Once again, the BLL Ride will have available Anne-Marie LaFrance, a professional massage therapist, so attendees can sign up for a free twenty-minute massage on Friday and Saturday afternoon. A Saturday “stretching for the ride” session will also be offered.
