My friend from Detroit is riding south and I am riding north with a plan to meet in Lexington KY. A little searching on the web has led me to look at US 421. The idea I have is we pick it up just south of Lexington and then head southeast following it into TN and the Carolinas.

We have done the Cherohala and the Blue Ridge in the past and I was thinking of US 421 as something a little different. I've done some web searching on "the snake" and it seems like an interesting ride. We are cruisers and we are looking for a relaxing ride - don't mind twisties but we're not out to do any Isle of Man type racing.

Any thoughts to share on this route? Any recommendations?

Thanks for any pointers!
