The Four Group Rides listed are in Increased Level of Difficulty of the Mountain Roads Traveled, Faster Pace, Increased Length, Fewer Stops and the Greatest Level of Experience Required for Mountain Twisty Riding. Do not know which Group Ride to participate in?? Here is a link: Issues from K1600'Tame the Tail of the Dragon #1. Most Mountain Riders should consider the Couples or Regular Group Rides. Spirited rides can cover almost 300 miles in a day.

To participate in the Group Rides or be Eligible for the Grand Prizes you must fill out a Release Form. Release forms are available upon arrival or each day prior to the Group Rides. Signing the Release Form Enters You for the Grand Prize(s) Drawing for the KLIM Jacket (Rider) or BMW All-around boots (Pillon) on Saturday Night at the IHML. You do not have to participate in the Group Rides to be eligible for the Grand Prize. You do have to sign a Release Form to have a chance to win one of the Grand Prizes. Data from the Release Forms will not be distributed out to anyone. All group rides depart from the IHML. Time of Departure is TBA by Group Ride Leader but, is usually starts with the Spirited Group at 8:30 AM & finishes with the Scenic Group at 9:30AM. Garmin gpx files of the Groups route are usually available on-line a few weeks before the TTD Event.

Food: IHML offers Breakfast & Dinner. If you are staying at the IHML they will E-Mail out a menu for the dinners (usually a week before your arrival). Breakfast preferences are filled out upon arrival.

For those BMWs Tame the Tail of the Dragon (TTD) participants that plan on staying at another facility/ location but, desire to eat at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge-
YES, YOU CAN eat at the IHML.
