Looking for something new... new to me, for a big bikepacking loop. There is a serious lack of gravel in WNC. I'm sure some local knowledge would be helpful, there are probably options, but I'm struggling to find much.
This winter has been tough, since I missed my thanksgiving ride to Roanoke, I have been itching to get out in the woods for a trip, but don't want to lay in my sleeping bag for 12 hrs of darkness. Spring is on its way... until then I'll keep dreaming, and looking at my bike!
