Blue Ridge Parkway Tour
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a protected two lane highway and arguably America’s best cycling route. It is closed to commercial traffic meaning no trucks or construction trailers. It has a speed limit of 45 miles an hour. With 90% of the traffic riding on only 10% of the road, we should have the roads to ourselves most of the time. The 469-mile scenic route takes you and your bike between Rockfish Gap, VA and Cherokee, NC over the course of six days of moving the cranks.
The route was built with the intent to allow visitors to be “gorged on scenery,” with “one panorama following right on another.” The rhythm of the road for cyclists is the ever changing landscape and variety of visual experiences.
