The Big Lynn Lodge is located in/near Little Switzerland, NC and is literally hanging on the side of the mountain right on NC-226A. You will be AMAZED at the view and you will be ASTONISHED by the roads! The riding is what I go there for but the scenery and the location is what has me staying.

The Big Lynn Lodge is located 300 feet off the Blue Ridge Parkway on

North Carolina Highway 226A


GPS & Printable Routes for event participants are available here


Most GPS files will be revised & new ones added for 2020


The Big Lynn Lodge has a unique "formula" in that their nightly room rate INCLUDES an excellent home styled cooked meal and a full Breakfast for each person!

I have negotiated special rates for this Big Lynn Lodge Ride.

This year's band will be "Almost Vintage" a local band populated mostly by MSTA members. They will perform Friday night and are very good and very entertaining!

Anne Marie LaFrance will once again be available for massages Friday after arrival and Saturday after the ride plus "Stretching before the Ride" on Saturday AM.
ADDITIONALLY: Anne said that she could be available Friday AM at the Big Lynn Lodge on an appointment basis for full treatments.
So if you wish an appointment with Anne call her office asap at 828-432-2008.

Needed: The promotion of our events is very important. So to that end I’m looking for a member who will do a write up telling of there experiences at the 2020 Big Lynn Lodge Ride.
Contact me Dave Brickner at
dwbrick@gmail.com. I will also need someone to take photographs at the event. Both of these tasks can be accomplished by one person or two.
