    I had not seen this thread previously. What better place than to post a photo from last summer riding Tail of the Dragon. Day before was Mt Mitchell from Marion.

    I haven't ridden a bicycle more than a block or two in the past 50 years, so take this with a grain of salt. But I would think that riding the Tail of the Dragon on a bicycle would scare me nearly to death. No shoulders to speak of; narrow driving lanes; limited sight distance for drivers; too many Ricky Racers; etc.

    Yep, cycling the TTD on a weekend would not be advisable. Frankly, I wouldn't even take the car or motorbike there on a weekend. When I'm cycling tough mountain passes or know there are going to be really technical descents, I go to great lengths to plan such rides for when there will be the least amount of traffic possible.
