This is one of the most beautiful stretches of roadway in the country, especially on two wheels. Lots of scenery, lots of mountains, and lots of curves. I rode the Blue Ridge from Virginia all the way down into Asheville, NC. As of Aug 5, 2018, somebody decided that it would be a good idea to chip seal about a 50 mile portion of the Blue Ridge in NC, near Asheville. Riders use caution on that stretch!! Taking a sharp curve in freshly laid gravel at a 5,000 ft elevation is not fun! It does not make any sense whatsoever why they would decide to throw gravel down on one of the most popular motorcycle roads in the country.
