Blue Ridge Parkway #BRP Trip

Blue Ridge Parkway #BRP Trip

The first time i've ever ridden in Virginia along the Blue Ridge Parkway (#BRP) was just the other weekend. A teammate of mine is familiar with the area and has ridden there many times. Since the weather was looking warm, we decided to escape the cold weather and rain and head down. The first day's route totaled 75 miles and 7800ft of climbing. After a quick 5 mile warm-up, we headed up to the #BRP with a 3 mile climb that averaged 7%. We rode by the Peaks of Otter and got a glimpse of how high the peaks are…
