Here are some tentative routes. SO FAR, weather looks good for Friday, iffy for Saturday, but it's over a week away, and much can & will likely change. Stay tuned.
Ride 1: I like this on Friday, as the restaurant in the mountains at Paint Bank VA is pretty small. It is a favorite destination for bikers and will be very crowded if we do this on Saturday.

#2, 2A (2A is similar to 2, but shorter if folks prefer.) & 3 are options for Saturday. On the map, these appear to be on I-81, but there is a parallel road that we would be on. There are NO interstate roads on any of there rides.

One of my favorite rides in the area is #3, with great vistas, mostly smooth curvy roads. There is a buffet in Covington VA for this ride, so we don't spend too much time waiting to be seated & served.

KICKSTANDS UP BOTH DAYS AT 10:00 A.M. FROM VISITORS CENTER MILEPOST 86 ON BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY
PLAN 25-30 MINUTES FROM HOTELS IN BEDFORD.

Ride 1-196 miles; Ride 2-182 miles; Ride 2A-163 miles; Ride 3-189 miles.

The ride might be fun, but in the end, it really is the destination that counts.
