I am fortunate to live not far from the NC section of the BRP and ride it quite often. I rode the whole thing a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.

Having grown up here in Asheville, I have a bad habit of taking all this fun riding and great scenery for granted. So since the exit for the parkway is right down the road, literally, I try to get up there whenever I can.

I would really like to ride start to finish on it, I've ridden many parts and any time I get down that South I jump on a ride a bit. But both times we've planned big sections of it we were bumper to bumper with lots of other traffic or kept getting buzzed by people flying, cars and cycles. Great place to do some scenic riding though. Some of the best times I've been on it were in overcast "bad" weather, less traffic and more riding.

I have added this route to my southbound leg to NC. Any idea how long it takes end to end?
