Climbed up George Hayes Rd to the Parkway, over to Blowing Rock, down Shulls Mill Rd. to NC 105 and over to Valle Crucis. I love this ride. As a straight shot, it’s only 22 miles, and it consists of 2 big climbs and 1 long descent. This pic is from Hound Ears and the bottom of Shulls Mill looking over to Grandfather Mt in the distance. Which reminds me. In case you were wondering, only a 131 days until the Bridge to Bridge.
