Default Dragon vs Blue Ridge Ride

Over the weekend I rode the Dragon for the first time just for the experience. Several responded that I should ride the Blue Ridge. Well, I agree. I have ridden the entire Parkway beginning with the Skyline portion. I have to say that enjoyed the Blue Ridge ride a million times more than the Dragon. Of course, I realize they are opposites but the pure enjoyment I got from riding the Blue Ridge I will remember the rest of my life. I was just glad to survive the Dragon. So, I could not agree more with suggesting that everyone ride the Blue Ridge at least once in their life. I have ridden it in the fall and in the summer for the last couple of years and suggest the fall as the best time frame.

As always, Ride Safe and Ride Often

I've only ridden a few miles on the BRP (20 miles or so west of Ashville and back) and I was blown away by how pretty all the overlooks were. I had to stop at all of them to take a picture. I think next time I go I will leave the camera at home and just ride.

You're just scratching the surface of the fantastic rides in this area. The best portion of the Parkway is south of Asheville. We ride the parkway fairly often, but mostly as a means to fill in the gaps between the good roads.

You are all listed as living in different areas. Where is the Dragon at. Around DC or SC? I hear everyone talking about cruising it, but have no idea of where you are talking about. I don't want to be an outsider. I need validation too, tell me so I can go. I need to join a club and show my patches to know I am a real rider too. lol. Would love to know where you are talking about though.

The Dragon starts around Robbinsville, North Carolina and ends up in Tennessee. (Or it could be the other way around depending on which way you are heading)

Go to http://americaridesmaps.com to get a free map which shows the Dragon and the surrounding area. Order "Maggie Valley to Deals Gap and the Cherohala Skyway".
