Take the leisurely and beautiful ride on Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway
One of the great rides in the Mid-Atlantic Region, is to take the leisurely ride from Front Royal Virginia, down Skyline Dive, through Shenandoah National Park and continuing down the Blue Ridge Parkway to Cherokee North Carolina. Skyline Drive and the Parkway is a beautiful ride, however, be warned that the average speed limit is 45 miles per hour, and you will get ticketed if you push the limit too far. This trip is one to be savored and enjoyed, not sped through. It is also common that rain and severe thunderstorms can occur on the parkway each day. I have personally run into lightening storms and hail. Go prepared. Since this route goes near the infamous Tail of the Dragon, I have thrown in two additional GPX files navigating the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway.
