Is riding the Blue Ridge Parkway for you?

In this episode of Threshold Stories, Jeff Gaura tackles all information regarding Threshold Academy’s 2021 Blue Ridge Parkway Tour.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is arguably America’s best cycling route. It is closed to all commercial traffic and has a speed limit of 45 miles an hour, keeping big vehicles off the road and cars going relatively slow. The 469-mile scenic route takes you and your bike between Rockfish Gap, VA and Cherokee, NC. The route is the longest planned road in the US, with construction starting in 1935 and ending in 1987. The park was built with the intent to allow visitors to be “gorged on scenery,” with “one panorama following right on another.” The rhythm of the road for cyclists is the ever changing landscape and variety of visual experiences.

We hope this episode helps you better understand our cycling tour on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Learn more about the trip HERE.
