Blue ridge parkway

Few pics from our ride yesterday, me and the better half hit the parkway at Fancy gap on the Va/Nc line and rode 110 miles to Linville Falls before heading home, total of 293 miles. Weather was great.

Great pics! Eight of us from Dover American Legion Riders are going down BRP on way to Tail of the Dragon this Friday. Rented cabin/lodge for a week so we can ride the area. Road captain has a new RG Custom. Probably post some pics.

One of my favorite places to ride. Try 221 which parallels the Parkway and a lower elevation, some good riding in the valley with a nice stream beside you.

As a side note, while riding Saturday from Tuggles Gap in SW VA with gr8bigdude we rode up to a closure 20 miles or so South of Roanoke and was closed all the way to Roanoke, reopening right at the US 220 exit.

This closure wasn't posted on the BRP website and was probably due to fallen trees from the severe wind and thunderstorms this past Thursday. No notice posted as to the cause or duration of the closure. Best route we saw was 221 N to 419 at Roanoke then S on 220 to the on ramp for the N Parkway.

Excellent pictures and a fine looking RG too!

The bridge picture is awesome.
I had seen a story somewhere about the construction of the Parkway.
I managed to find the below as to why there is a "bridge" there.
I thought it was interesting anyway...
