While most motorcycle riders clean up their rides and store them for the winter. Those that live in the mountains ride any chance they get. This year winter temperatures have been in the 50′s, 60′s and even 70′s which gives no excuse to get out on the highway and enjoy the scenic by-ways. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just a stones throw from Rock-n-Creek Cabin which is biker friendly and offers secured covered parking for those treasures. Don’t wait till spring when there’s great weather now to get in the wind. Give us a call and make plans to visit our cabin ride to Crabtree Falls and experience the Parkway in winter.
