2210 miles in 5 days

I rode to Robbinsville, NC with two friends and spent a day riding the Dragon, US 129, with 318 turns in 11 miles. We rode that a few times, then toured the surrounding mountain roads.

I then went my own way for a few days, taking the Blue Ridge Parkway from its beginning in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the end near Charlottesville, VA.

Along the way, I visited Station's Inn Motorcycle Resort, Hollins University, Washington & Lee University, the Virginia Military Institute and the University of Virginia.

On the ride home, I also visited the University of Richmond.

This is me taking a turn on the Dragon.
