VQ BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY CAMP

MAY

1 - 5 & 6 - 10


Kick off the Spring season with the magnificent scenery and incredible terrain of the Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway was envisioned as a unique kind of national park, literally a "managed museum" of American countryside. The designers intended not only the stunning panoramic views, but also close-up experiences of rushing creeks, dense forest, verdant farmland, as well as mills and cabins preserved from the time of the first settlers.

That attention to detail in the design, with variation between distant views and nearby details is a boon to cyclists -- we are rewarded with awesome views at the top of the long climbs, and we're entertained by beauty and history as we make those climbs. We will stay in small mountain villages and towns along the route, sampling regional food and enjoying the talent of local musicians. Overnight accommodations will range from comfortable mountain retreat locations, to the sights and sounds of small towns.

What better reward after a long winter of training hard indoors than to treat yourself to 5 days on the Blue Ridge Parkway with Vision Quest?!
