I ride skyline often because I'm only 30 minutes away from it. It is a great ride but speeds are slow and depending on how many visitors are there it's even slower. This is a high visitor time of year with all of the hikers and bicyclist so it will be slower. I wouldn't go out of my way to do it because of this. There is plenty of other great riding south of skyline and around Maggie Valley. Just my opinion.
