Bicycling the Blue Ridge, 6th edition
Elizabeth and Charlie Skinner


Tour This Dream Road on Bicycle, Between North Carolina and Virginia.

Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway are arguably the most quintessential scenic roads east of the Mississippi. Bicycling the Blue Ridge is the definitive guide to this ribbon of highway. Itís just what you need to plan the perfect trip, whether you are out for the day, a weekend, or a month. Youíll find detailed, mile-by-mile descriptions that provide information on lodging, restaurants, stores, and bike shops. Professionally designed maps and elevation profiles are also included, so you always know where you are, where youíre going, and what to expect along the way.

The 575-mile strip of continuous road flows between Front Royal, Virginia, and Cherokee, North Carolina. It traverses Shenandoah National Park and connects to Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the eastern rampart of the Appalachian Mountains. In Bicycling the Blue Ridge, authors Elizabeth Skinner and Charlie Skinner cover the entire route. Whether your interest is recreational touring or racing, this is an indispensable tool for bicycling this incredible highway.

The No-Drop Zone

The No-Drop Zone
Patrick Brady


   The No-Drop Zone covers all the information necessary for a new cyclist to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to take them from buying their first bicycle to starting their first race. Cyclists will learn how to handle the bike, perform minor maintenance, select clothing and accessories, join clubs, and find events.

    Anyone can buy a road bike and go out and ride it, but to ride in a group, one needs specific skills from being able to avoid bumping into other riders when riding in close quarters to fixing a flat quickly enough to rejoin the group. Why would a competent adult want to ride in close quarters with other cyclists? Because riding in the group may be as close to flying in a flock of birds as a person may come. The experience is at once social (imagine being able to talk to a friend as you ride), exciting (descending in a group is a thrill), and exhilarating (finishing a long hill gives the rider a huge sense of accomplishment). Also, the fitness benefits of riding in a group are enormous.

    From a discussion about the bicycle and its components to skills, nutrition, and training, The No-Drop Zone has all the knowledge a cyclist needs to move to that next level of skill.
