Vendors who understand our event, like No-Mar, do just fine. Those expecting a captive audience all day not so much.

But that's different from your initial "we don't have vendors". They may not be traditional vendors, just like our group rides are not traditional biker group rides (parades of 50-100 bikes or more).

Roan Mountain Rhododendron Festival

The Rhododendron should be in full bloom this weekend. However beware there will be lots of traffic and the weather is always different up on Roan Mountain.

AH yes, recall at Tri-STAR one year heading up Roan Mountain, then back down the other side since it was raining as we ascended. Later the same day thing we doubled back that way and finally stopped to look around. The first time I stopped after going thru a few times in sketchy weather.

The rhododendron there are pretty spectacular.
