I thought we could have one day for the Dragon even though most has run it (I have several times), parts of the Parkway should be included. There are several really cool waterfalls nearby within a short walk from parking, the Hellbender or Tail of the Dragon, Shiners Run (northwest of Asheville), several great rides east of Asheville, the Rattler and Devil's Whip. So many to choose from, some I've done but some I haven't and I'm usually by myself. The Skyway is kinda farther out but still a contender. My friends also know great little backwoods places to eat so their input would be invaluable in multiple ways. I plan to keep in touch with them and add rides to my Rever app. I will also probably run up there in the spring and or summer (both....lol) to check out rides and ride with them. Let me know if anyone has any special places you want to visit like strip joints, biker bars or museums. Blowing Rock is northeast of Asheville but I was disappointed (just a cliff with beautiful views....maybe I went on a slow day). Let me know. Starting to plan early cause I may not have anymore surgeries and my wife will make me go back to work.
Thanks Ron. I haven't done much planning yet but I had intended to find someone in the area to help. Tell your pals they are more than welcome to attend and all help appreciated.

Interesting list, I've probably ridden +80% of those listed either in whole or in part. Some are absolutely great others good for a nice winter ride when its not feasible to head to the mountains from the Raleigh area. You can put some very nice loops together from the Sylva area depending on just how much riding per day your interested in doing.

Probably not but the Walmart across the street has a huge parking lot.

Think about it...if the shortcut was easier, it would not be called a shortcut...it would just be "the way".
