41st INTERNATIONAL RALLY
ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
Association is pleased to announce our return to “America’s Castle” in
2013. Many will remember our 2007 rally at this same location and have
been asking since, “When are we going back?”
Asheville, considered one of the most eclectic cities around. Not only
will rally goers have full run of the Biltmore Estate, but Asheville offers a
wide variety of shops, eating establishments and outdoor activities. Zip
lining, white water rafting and hundreds of hiking and biking trails await all.
And of course, there is the riding. Western North Carolina offers some of the
best riding east of the Mississippi. Choose pavement or dirt, the
possibilities are endless. Close to the Dragon and the Snake, any road in
the area takes the rider on winding and twisting roads through the Smokey
Mountains. And if you prefer dirt, the area has roads for every skill level
available for exploration.
The worse part
will be choosing whether to stay on the estate, tour the house, vendors,
seminars or venture off the estate and sample some of what western North
Carolina has to offer. Come early, stay late, just mark your calendars
and make your plans. See you in Asheville! Visit the Asheville Chamber's
webpage for information about great things to do in Asheville and about lodging
