Bleu Ridge Parkway Tour 2022

Reflections on riding the Blue Ridge Parkway

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 park was built with the intent to allow visitors to be “gorged on scenery,” with “one panorama following right on another.”
