The Blue Ridge Parkway? You might be able to hop onto Skyline Dr from the Harrisonburg area and connect to the BRP from there. There may be other ways to connect that I don't know of, but a short ride on 81 and 64 should get you there if you don't get any other suggestions there.

Another vote for BRP. Several nice excursions branch off the parkway if you have the time.

I am definately avoiding BRP. I've had a couple of "issues" with the Park Rangers there and the strict speed limit.

I've been on the roads from Harrisonburg to where you're turning off 219 on 4 wheels quite a few times and they're amazing roads.

Looks like a lot more fun to me. I prefer the 250 across, but the 33 is good. I would cut e through Cass/Snowshoe via 28 and 66, again just me. 16 and 58 in VA are great, as long as you like turns.

Planning on slab from Abdingdon? If not Lots of great roads, but you will not make time.

Fun route, ridden the roads many times but was never really trying to get anywhere on a specific day.

Yeah, beats the BRP if you have twitchy wrist syndrome.
