I left Mt. Pleasant, SC all by my lonesome on Friday 9/13/13 @ 4:30 AM.
I arrived at the beginning (end) of the BRP in Cherokee, NC at 10:30 AM and started on the BRP @ MP-469.
I arrived at Black Mountain CG, which is on the east side of Asheville @ MP-344 at 3:30 PM. This is a great campground operated by the Cradle of Forestry folks.
Day 1: 440 miles
On Day 2, I slept late, stopped for a good breakfast, and started back on the BRP @ 10:30 AM. I rode 220 miles to Roanoke, Va/MP-122, arriving at 4:00 PM.
Day 2: 220 miles
Got up on Day 3 and rode the last 122 miles to Waynesboro, Va./MP-0, arriving at 10:30 AM.
That was all easy riding with many stops at pull-offs to take pics and chill for a while. No big hurry. It was a great way to ride the whole 469 miles of the BRP.
Ready to go again!
If it don't involve dirt, oil or beer, it ain't worth screwin' with
