    Thumbs up Blue Ridge Parkway: Full colors next week.

    Just got back from an exceptional ride. From PA, slabbed it to Gaffney, SC, then 11 to 28 to Cherokee and north on Parkway. If you haven't had the chance RT 28 is excellent! Wanted to let all know full colors will be in this coming weekend. There was enough color to make it great and weather was amazing. Wanted to give a heads up on a really great value in lodging: We stayed in Harrisonburg, VA on way down and discovered a family hotel in operation for three generations: The Village Inn. Best place I've stayed in for years. On site resturant with home cooked food at near fast food prices, very good service, and clean well maintained, very reasonable rooms. Biker friendly. on rt 11 off 81 between exists 243 & 240. 4979 South Valley Pike, Harrisonburg, VA 22801.

    ENJOY !

    Thanks Cam

    We are on the road from Ohio and currently in eastern Georgia.
    After a trip to Savannah and Hilton Head Island we're planning to catch some BRP on the way home. Thanks for the recommendation, sounds great

    Parkway LEO Warning

    I was bicycling on the northern end of the Parkway last weekend and saw more patrol cars than than all previous trips combined. I don't know if there was anything special going on or if they are just clamping down on the speeders.

    Exclamation "Speed traps" on BRP.

    Yes, there were several park rangers or police pulling people over. One followed us about 10 miles. I put the bike on cruise control, what a pain! At one section there were three patrol SUV's working together. Be careful out there.

    It's not just the Rangers that might slow you down a bit on the BRPW this time of year.

    In fact, these are much worse:

    Peak Season

    I rode from the Meadows of Dan,VA to the Linn Cove Viaduct, NC on Saturday.

    We where camping at

    Just fabulous colors around every bend!

    It was the most spectactular fall folage I've ever seen!

    Very dry down in that area, all the creeks and streams are either dry or pooling, not flowing at all.

    Saw 5 patrol cars in 2 days.
