    Spend the day riding some of the best roads in WNC: dirt, gravel, twisties, TAT; spend the rest of your dat at Crawfords, eating great food, enjoying a few pints of free craft beer (or root beer), show off you slow riding skills, and join the bullshitting on the fire-pit. What can go wrong? :lol3

    • hot showers
    • Dinner on Thursday
    • Breakfast and Dinner on Friday

    • good people
    Cost:
    $99 + $15for late registrations after April 19th. Sorry no one-day-passes (too hard to control) and no refunds. If you are not able to come, you are more than welcome to sell your spot. online registration closed
    Extras:
    • Cabin space (more info below)
    • RV spots with hook-ups
    • Dinner Wednesday, Breakfast Thursday (on donation basis)
    • short sleeve or long sleeve shirts
    • silly-cups
    History:

    The Eastern Rendezvous is the oldest annual ADV rally, and the only one in the south east. It started in 2002 as a small traveling gathering, and Rick aka Party Boss turned it into an annual event known as the Eastern Rendezvous. Sadly we lost Rick in 2012. Nobody will ever be able to be such a great and inviting host like he was, but we will keep his rally alive in honor of what he started.

    One for the Boss :beer

    The Ol' Late Train

    Leaving from the front office area-ish around 10:30-ish and riding about 100-ish miles on a mix of twisty back roads and forest service roads with a lunch stop somewhere in the middle-ish.

    I reserve the right to change these plans at any given moment but as always, standard rules for group riding apply and at the end of the day everybody is responsible for themselves and if you're silly enough to follow me it's at your own risk. :D

    Due to the lack of hills, we are going to do a slow-race instead of the tricycles... sorry. Or maybe we do a slow tricycle pull race :scratch
