My friends Mike and Jason road the entire BRP. Here is their write up: http://parkwaybybike.blogspot.com/
I rode up to meet them at Little Swizterland, spend the night and ride back to Asheville with them the next day. I couldn't help but take the scenic route though.
The next day, I was a bit tired, and Mike and Jason were pedaling a little bit faster than me. They had farther to go, so I encouraged them to leave me behind. They were having none of it, so we ground up and over the hills to Craggy, where Ton and John Paksoy met us. This created a train and we bombed down the grade all the way to Asheville, making quick work of the miles.
I peeled off and went home and the guys rode on to finish their day at Mt Pisgah. Big ride.
Congrats to Jason, Mike and Rhonda (Mike's Rhonda) for completing the entire parkway! Mike has talked about that ride for a long time and finally went for it!
