This year myself and 2 friends rode Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway and many great roads in the Deals Gap area. Rather than a ride report, I put together a few articles on the roads, in an effort to help others decide weather or not to visit the area (highly recomended BTW). Check them out below:
The group I ride with yearly stays at the base of the Cherohala, we tried the devils triangle this year. It was a nice ride, but holy calamity trying to get back through rush hour when only 1/2 a person knew the directions (that's a nice way of saying the 2 'leaders' half-assed it.)
I was cramped up by the time we got there, so took it easy as 250rr wasn't the best choice for a long ride. Way in the back of the pack I start picking up the pace, only to realize I couldn't see a killer drop off that was hidden by a little rise in the road. Fortunately I kept my wits about me and made the left right left without issue...but chilled right back out to my snails pace I was carrying before.
