Sunday Morning-6/13- Skyline Drive
POSTED: 6/13/09 11:35 AM

I'm heading out to Skyline Drive in the a.m., for what I hope will be about a 3 hour ride. I'd like to clip in by 7 a.m., though that may be a bit ambitious. Would love some company. Think of the photos, people:

Here's the plan (courtesy Ray Maker):

"Start at Dickey Ridge visitor center – mile 4.5. This takes out the initial climb, but that’s all good because you start at a nice facility (with a bathroom!) as opposed to a roadside nothingness. From there, pedal (or crawl as it may be) to mile 21, a high point, and then turn around and come back.

(A general rule of thumb for Skyline drive is take your average speed and multiply it by .6-.75 to figure out how long it will take ya.)"

Cue sheet: Go straight and turn around! Easy!

Put this ride on your schedules! Gorgeous! Fantastic! Fun! (though somewhat death-defying!) I can't feel my leeeeeggggs!
