The Long Reach Long Riders are happy to announce their 2022 charity motorcycle ride.  The 19th annual ride, “Blue Ridge Ramble”  begins on June 18 in Charlotte, North Carolina and returns to Charlotte on June 24th

The route meanders through North & South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia before turning north back to Charlotte.  Along the way the riders will encounter some of the most scenic and exciting motorcycle roads in the east.   The Tail of the Dragon, the Snake, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Cherohala Skyway are just a few of the roads the riders will experience over the 7 day ride.

Greg Williams, ride marshal for the "Blue Ridge Ramble" ride noted,  “The days will be filled with rewarding rides along the ridgelines and through sweeping valleys, taking in the best scenery the early summer has to offer in the Appalachian Mountains. Evenings will be spent in historic inns located in history-rich towns tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with the possibility of a ghost hunt in at least one of the old inns. Who knows... maybe we'll even get to see the spirit of Nancy Ward.” For more information on the Cherokee "Beloved Woman", read here: https://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/entries/nancy-ward/
