  Dear Traveler,

The Blue Ridge Mountains are home to some of the most glorious cycling opportunities on the eastern seaboard. The region has a rich history and culture, the local cuisine is superb and the spring/autumn climate couldn't be more ideal for biking.

We're excited to introduce you to this wonderful new trip in a destination that's been on our radar for a number of years. And with the up-and-coming communities of Asheville and Greenville each being touted as "the next big thing," and the arrival of George Hincapie's new Hotel Domestique, NOW is the time to experience it with Backroads.

Our debut Carolinas Asheville to Greenville Biking Trip is a true classic in the making, and I hope the following info will pique your curiosity. And of course you can always contact us at Backroads for a detailed itinerary and answers to all your questions—give us a call at 800-462-2848 (daily from 6 am to 6 pm PT).

Best regards,

spacer Straight Talk The majority of cycling during this Carolinas trip is on roads with very little traffic; a minority of riding is on the Blue Ridge Parkway which has more traffic. We've planned to ride the Parkway on quieter week days, but it's important to be comfortable sharing the road with cars, or you can always take a lift in the van. spacer
