Appalachia TEACHING TOUR [May 8-15, 2019]
Explore Southern Appalachia and the Great Smoky Mountains on this year’s East Coast TEACHING TOUR. Winding our way through North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee, we ride, learn and grow together in our passion and skill with motorcycling. We’ll explore scenic byways, ride curvy roads, and try everything in between gaining confidence and learning about touring while touring. We’ll hit all the highlights of this area: the Cherohala Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, Back of the Dragon, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Join us for ten magical days together riding with your newfound friends. [This teaching tour has an abbreviated version of the Awesome Appalachia tour and is perfect for women wanting to gain confidence touring *while* touring in a group as well as experienced women who want to explore this area and ride hard and fast in a separate group.]

Each day on tour we’ll offer an optional teaching component for riders wishing to go deeper in their touring knowledge and get more comfortable with traveling long distances as well as riding curves on your bike.

New for 2019: Tour registration includes one 1:1 mindset coaching session with Alisa after the tour is complete.
Advanced Riders- Are welcome on this tour. Each day we’ll have two different routes and you will ride curvier roads and more mileage each day.
