What: Dream House 500
A 500 km (300 mile) Sport Touring & Adventure Touring motorcycle ride in the North Georgia Mountains by Fun & Reliable Tiddlers to benefit the Dream House for Medically Fragile Children, Inc.
When: Saturday, October 5, 2013
We’re just over a month away from one of my favorite annual charity rides which is the Dream House 500.
The minimum $100 entry fee / donation is one of the best investments you will ever make as it includes not only a great, day long ride but also breakfast, lunch and dinner, live entertainment, prizes and best of all a chance to help children with serious medical issues receive care through Dream House.
Each year, just when I think I’ve ridden every good road there is in the North Georgia Mountains, the ride route manages to introduce me to at least one road that I haven’t previously rode on. The organizers encourage riders to form into small groups for the ride so even if you don’t know anybody that is participating you won’t have any problem joining a group to ride with. The ride begins and ends at the Honda Rider Education Center in Alpharetta, GA.
Below is a description of the event from the Dream House 500 website and a link to the site where you can get additional info and register for the event. Hope to see you there !!
The Dream House 500 is a charity fundraising event to support Dream House for Medically Fragile Children and provide an enjoyable motorcycle adventure for its participants. It is actually two events in one, providing a 500km day of sport touring over the Southern Appalachian’s best roads and a shorter route which includes some unpaved Forest Service roads for adventure touring riders.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided as part of the entry and explicit route instructions will guide the rider along the spectacular designated routes. Checkpoint visits along the way will be made to participate in drawings for valuable prizes.
Gathering at the end of the day will give us a chance to mingle with fellow riders over a full dinner and hear about the wonderful things being done for the children of the Dream House. Door prizes will be awarded and top fundraisers will be recognized.
Seldom will you have a chance to participate in a better organized event and ride some of the most spectacular roads in the area. Chances are many of them will be new and exciting places your motorcycle has never seen.
