Blue Ridge Challenge

Blue Ridge Challenge Professional Review and Guide

"The Blue Ridge Challenge offers the cyclist magnificent scenery, a sampling of its rich folk heritage, and some mean mountain climbing. Designed for the fit and strong cyclist, the challenge lets you experience the quiet Franklin County rural life as you roll through Ferrum, Callaway, and Algoma. Be prepared for the climb of your life on your way up Bent Mountain.

Follow the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway for 15 miles, and enjoy the thrilling descent down Five-Mile Mountain, as the Tour Dupont riders did several years ago. End your ride with a visit to the extraordinary Blue Ridge Institute and Museum to experience past and present Blue Ridge folklore. Terrain: Mountainous. Advanced difficulty. Not suitable for beginners."
