A Velo Girl Rides Route
Blue Ridge Parkway Route Summary
Distance – 470 miles
Elevation Gain – approximately 49,000′
Difficulty – Challenging
Start – Mile Post 0 in Afton VA
High on the list of every cyclist, this remarkable national park unfolds in a continuous ribbon, without a single stop sign or traffic light along the entire way. It is truly a bicycling treasure unique to the United States.
My grandfather’s farm lies adjacent the Blue Ridge Parkway in Meadows of Dan Virginia, so the parkway has always felt like a member of the family. I’ve ridden all 470 miles of the parkway numerous times and I know some sections so well that I could navigate them while blindfolded.
Cycling every inch of the parkway isn’t easy and the accomplishment earns major bragging rights. Because I love helping cyclists reach their goals, I offer fully-supported tours of the entire Blue Ridge Parkway over 7 days and 10 days. And I’ve designed these tours to combine challenging riding with stops along the way for great food, music, sightseeing, and taking photographs.
