Route Overview

The Blue Ridge area is considered by some to be a motorcycle mecca, a place where Riding gets capitalized in sentences out of respect for the area's curves and beautiful scenery. The Blue Ridge truly takes Riding to a whole new level.

Blue Ridge Parkway Motorcycle breathtaking views and sweeping curves, coupled with 469 stop sign- and traffic light-free miles, make the Blue Ridge Parkway a glorious ride for motorcyclists. The scenic road attracts hundred of thousands of motorcycle riders each year, and many riders consider the Parkway to be among the very best venues in the country. Basic motoring laws apply to motorcyclists on the Parkway: wear a helmet, observe the maximum 45 mph speed limit, and make sure your headlights are on after dark.
