Touring the Blue Ridge Parkway
520 Miles with 48,000 feet of climbing
by Elle Colquitt & Jon Livengood
One week, 520 miles, 48,601 feet of climbing, 27 tunnels, 168 bridges and over 200 overlooks - that's the stats for our bicycle tour of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Coming away from the tour, it's the incredible beauty, the long haul climbs and super fast flowing descents, the drenching rain and that awesome cup of hot chocolate that helped warm us up, the sun and flowers, the bear that walked right in front of us, the sleeping out under the stars, the folks we met, and oh yes, the two flats...that's the memories you bring home. It's a memory worth repeating!
