Countdown to BRP!
« on: September 17, 2014, 05:47:23 pm »
Well, only 10 days until I head south for a week of riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Smokie Mountains area.

I trailer the Trophy to Galax VA (from Toronto) and ride down the BRP to the Robbinsville area (although staying in Murphy this year).  Love the BRP and especially 226A (snake), 151 outside of Asheville, Cheohala and the Bald River Falls, Joe Brown Road, Wayah Road, #28 (my fav from Franklin to Montana Village) and of course the Tail.

Cannot wait!

I finally rode the entire length of the BRP back in May of this year.

Mile 0 near Waynesboro, VA



At the high point south of Ashville, NC



At Mile Post 469 outside of Cherokee, NC



You should see a couple of these along the way...



Enjoy!

BRP is on my rides bucket list. I'll get there in the next few years.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Hey crazy when you stayed in Robbinsville did you stay at the Two Wheel Inn?   Have fun, I know you will there are so many good roads in that area.

I have ridden the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive every year since 1978. I will be making my second run this year in October. The ride never gets old. I stay in Maggie Valley when I am riding in that part of the country. Get a good map of the area and check out the many great roads in the Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia area. The BRP is just one of many. You have got to ride 64 from Franklin over to Brevard. 215 is another great road without any traffic. The "waterfall tour" is another great way to spend a day. The list goes on.
