RobY Posted April 27, 2005 Share Posted April 27, 2005 318 turns 11 miles. http://www.tailofthedragon.com/maps_dragon_road.html Thats like taking you average highschool running track and adding 7 turns and driving around it 44 times. Add scenery and you got a carcoaster. http://www.tailofthedragon.com I got a friend that went down with the S2k club. He had a blast and puked his brains out 2nd run down. They actually have this event annually. Perhaps we can get somthing like this going with the suby community... The funny thing is the North Carolina Half's speed limit for this road is 55mph. Thats WAY too fast to do this comfortably... "RECORD TIMES: You will hear a lot about the fastest times on the Dragon. The original timing involved a run from the Overlook to the Crossroads of Time and then back, an 18.6-mile distance. The round trip time was then divided by two. The Deals Gap Riding Society record for an amateur rider was a 22 minute round trip run, which averaged out to 11 minutes (50.7 mph average). The overall record was 18 minutes, or 9 minutes one-way (62 mph average). In order to compete for a new record one had to make the run along with the current record holder." You arent even coming close to 55mph unless you are petter soulberg. Sounds intresting who's down? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
