Leaving soon for FL to NY and ACK and back...
I'm planning to ride from FL to NY (and Nantucket) and back from 9/11/09 through 9/27/09.
I want to ride as much as I can make practical of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I also want to take on some (all??) of the Tail of the Dragon. I have never done any rides like either of those since I started riding earlier this year.
Now, I don't even know yet whether I'll be trying to hit these on the way north or on the way south--but it's much more likely that it will be on the way south. My itinerary is pretty up-in-the-air, but I have to leave FL on Friday 9/11 and reach NY by Sunday night at the latest, since I then will join my dad for the Monday morning trip from L.I. to Nantucket. There may not be time to be traversing hither and thither across NC and VA until the more leisurely trip south back to Florida.
Since I will probably be attempting these rides on the way south, can anyone help me with info, or links to threads that are specifically about approaching those from the NY area? That would be much appreciated.
