Blue Ridge Parkway Ride

This ride is not recommended for the very new riders as it approx. 262 miles one-way from Rockville and will pick-up the Blue Ridge Parkway off route 250. It will then follow the Blue Ridge Parkway to the end at Route 460/221. To make better time the return trip will follow I-81.

    I've done the entire blue ridge several times. It is a great ride, though in my opinion the southern end is much better than the north. You are in for a long day. Don't forget the speed limit is only 45 (few spots are 25}. Wish I could join you. We are in the middle of main bathroom re model and I've got to baby the contractors. Enjoy.

    Joseph, I don't why that would not work! I wish I could stay overnight, but taxes are due and I am just getting started.

    Andres/Rodwell, It appears that the ride participation has dropped considerably , but I've heard and I've read that the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the top 10 routes in the USA so it is on my bucket list. I am still in for the ride. Are you guys are still in? If so do you want to meet earlier since it will be just the 3 of us? Please let me know!

    Also the Blue Rodge Bikefest is this weekend in the Roanoke Civic Center, Roanoke, VA. http://www.blueridgebikefest.com/
