DEALS GAP RIDE FOR KIDS EVENT                    September 29 2018


Wow can't believe the 2018 Season is almost here.  We are now in our 11th year of supporting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.  Last year we transitioned from a supporter of a event to being the host property and we have changed many things for the 2018 event.  This year we will start with sponsored group rides.... If you'd like to sponsor your own ride please contact Brad at : or call me , the fastest way at (828) 400-2912.  Group rides will start at 7am with a free pandcake breakfast, followed by a guided ride ending back at the resort for a free lunch, music and raffle.  This year you will NOT have to be present to win the grand prize of a Honda motorcycle ( which one we do not know, last year it was a CBR 300 but could be traded in for cash value for another Honda motorcycle).  So if you need to move on after lunch your ticket is still valid.



This year we will be having DEALS GAP RESORT trophies for top fund raisers:            

TOP Team:  The group ride or team that raises the most money will receive a individual Plaque as well as be added to the new Deals Gap Cup that will be on display in the store.

TOP Individual:  Top single fund raiser over $3,000 will recieve a plaque and be added to a separate top fund raiser cup.  They will also receive a certificate for a free weekend stay at the hotel.


So far this is who have signed on to sponsor rides:

Yamaha: (Sport Bike Ride) 10-15 slots

A spirited ride from Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort down US 129 to the Skyway back around TN 360 to The Dragon and back to the Resort.

Wally's Ice Cream Ride (All Bikes) 20-25 slots

A slow paced, picture taking jaunt down NC 28 to Bryson City to invade a local Ice Cream shop and returning back by lunch.  Wally is happy to stop at Fontana Dam for picture ops as well as allowing for time to walk around Bryson City.

Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort ( Dual Sport Ride) 15-20 slots

Brad will lead a ride down US 129 to the skyway where we will transition to maintained gravel park service roads for most of the day.

More rides and registration will be opening soon so keep checking back and follow our facebook page for the next few weeks for more information.

Last year this event raised $32,000 but this year we are setting the goal to $50,000




We will open the Resort on March 2nd 2018, weather permitting. The Store hours will be 9:00am - 6:00pm. The Grill will be open from 11:00am - 4:00pm.

In the meantime, if you would like to do something for David and his family, you can ride with us or donate to the DGMR Destination Ride he was planning to ride in to fundraise for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® Ride for Ride for Kid's®.

We Have It All

Thanks for visiting, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us or come on by.
