Asheville City Escape Motorcycle Ride Professional Review and Guide
"By far, this is the shortest and quickest ride featured in this book, and perfect if you have just a few minutes to get away. Consider it a “between-meals snack” for your bike. You’ll enjoy great views of the growing Asheville skyline as you ascend the steep, well-paved and twisty road to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where you can ride a few sweeping curves and visit the Folk Art Center.
From there, return by way of Tunnel Road, which cuts through a busy dining district—and Beaucatcher Mountain. It’s a wonderful introduction to the city of Asheville and makes for a great escape into nearby mountains. Points of interest: Asheville Skyline, Blue Ridge Parkway, Folk Art Center, many national franchise restaurants, Beaucatcher Tunnel on Tunnel Rd."
