Ride the Blue Ridge Parkway
Hey guys, has anyone ridden the whole length of the Blue Ridge Parkway? I was thinking about doing this at a leisurely pace... 3 days, 2 nights including time to get to one end and back after the ride.
If anyone has done this, any feedback?
- Direction of travel?
- Weekend ok? Or should I do a weekday?
- How slow of a pace? Should we stop to see attractions or is the ride the attraction?
- Any recommendations for a place to stay? I'd probably seek out a cabin or cheaper motel room. I don't get much sleep in a tent.
- Is it worth adding Skyline Drive? Is it more of the same?
I'm having a hard time finding friends who ride that wanna come. They have older, uncomfortable bikes. If anyone here is interested, let me know. I havent picked a date yet, but was tentatively thinking 2-3 weekends from now.
Thanks for the advice!
