Has anyone ever rode the "Blue Ridge Parkway"? Can the 400+ miles be easily riden in a day or should you take 2 days to enjoy the scenery? I'm from Iowa and have never toured in the eastern mountains. I have a buisness meeting in KY in July and plan to extend my trip. We also have a son in Dover and may go see him.
I haven't done it yet (it's on my short list) but I've heard that 2 days is the quickest you can do and 3 is even better. Speed limit 40 or 45 the whole way, often encounter slower moving traffic, and every couple of miles there's a pull off where you'll want to oooh and aaah and take some pictures!
