This is a bucket list ride along Skyline Drive, which connects to the Blue Ridge Parkway:  574 miles of  gorgeous vistas and dramatic elevations. The parkway snakes through the Blue Ridge Mountains and traverses the states of Virginia and North Carolina, and offers us a chance to challenge and amaze.  Our lodging stays as close to the parkway as possible, but we will sometimes have to swoop out of the mountains to find a comfortable bed and a hearty meal.  The Timberline van will always be available to help you regain your elevation in the morning to continue the Parkway quest.  We spend 9 days on the parkway, and have scheduled the ride to only include one weekend to minimize the competition with vehicles.  The foliage should just be beginning to change and the weather should be cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoons.  We end in Bryson City, NC at the southern edge of Great Smoky National Park with a celebratory dinner.
