The Backbone Motorcycle Ride Professional Review and Guide
"This ride derives its name from the unusual geological formation through which this adventure will take you. Following two-lane roads that alternate between quiet stretches and wild hairpin turns, this ride has something for every type of motorcyclist. Along the way, you’ll pass through several small towns and ride through an old covered bridge. Another feature most bikers will like about this ride is the nearly complete absence of other traffic. You’re sure to enjoy this introduction to the great scenic byways of eastern Tennessee and southern Virginia. Points of interest: The covered bridge in Elizabethton, the Elizabethton Airport, Shady Valley, Cherokee National Forest, Backbone Rock, Virginia Creeper Trail."
