Wayne leads a motorcycle ride with Facebook friends out of Old Fort, North Carolina with a goal to show these experienced riders roads and sights they've not seen before. Heading south, he takes them on little known backroads through Lake Lure, Saluda, Rosman, with stops at roadside waterfalls along the way. The beautiful fall colors take them into South Carolina and ultimately to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Excellent secondary road ride through Northern Virginia including the historic Georgetown Cemetery, Lurray, and the beautiful Fort Valley Road before taking old highway 55 through small towns back to the starting point in Manassas. Time: Appx 6-7 hours with stops for lunch, coffee, and pics Traditional Meetup Time: 10am
It was a terrific day for sure. That particular switchback with the 5mph sign was remarkable; off camber, downhill, and COVERED in loose gravel and pea gravel. Nasty. I think the back road from Lurray to Fort Valley Road, a great #VA #road , will be the new default for that route as it was very pretty and the road was in good shape with very little by way of traffic or build-up. I think we will def need to rerun this route two or three more times before the #Gap trip, it was a surprisingly good scale model of the #Gap area roads. #roadride #ride #roads #va #Lurray #Skyline
