Those of you eager to sample cycling in the Blue Ridge will find that the Little Switzerland Ramble offers many highlights of cycling over mountainous terrain in a mere 6 & 1/2 mile loop. This ride includes an exhilarating descent on the Blue Ridge Parkway, quick shoot through Little Switzerland Tunnel, back roads that hug the ridge line, scenic views of the Piedmont to the east, a visit to the village of Little Switzerland, and a taste of uphill cycling that will test your stamina. This is a festive area, the motels and lodges here have borrowed on the alpine theme, with motels and village shops built in the chalet style. Terrain: mountainous with a fast descent on the Blue Ridge Parkway and gradual climbs on Hwy. 226A. Low traffic except during peak and tourist times, primarily during the month of October.
