Summary "There is no ribbon of highway more ideal for bicycling than the Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Perhaps we feel this way because we stubbornly seek out roads that are enticing to the senses and physically challenging. We spent the greater part of our lives in Florida, a state summed up by bicyclists as hot, flat, and full of headwinds. There is no fall season in Florida; it's pretty much green there year-round. So, bicycling against a backdrop of yellow, russet, and orange was a new experience for us. After decades of exploration by bicycle, the Blue Ridge continues to amaze us"-- Provided by publisher.
