Blue Ridge Run 2016!

EXCELLENT.....it's our 3rd annual Blue Ridge Run! BRR is a great place to go and get away from the heat. Avg. temps in the mountains for this time of month is around 80°. The twisties, scenery, and dirt are always a welcome site.....and so is the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground that we call home for the weekend! Moved it back a week this year to not interfere with Fathers Day. Be sure and check out last year's report at the bottom of this post!


Who: Anyone wanting world class Adventure and Dual Sport riding!
What: Blue Ridge Run
Where : Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso,NC
Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground
When: June 24-26 (Early Bird -23rd)
Why: Because we are about as far east as the mountains go!


Phil and Leslie still have some of the Twin Beds Cabins available and some of the Full Bed Cabins available!

That's a great place to ride and (IMO) on the best part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I'd love to go. We ride that area a lot but we (wife and I) "camp" in a motorhome with the A/C set on 68. I looked at their website and it doesn't look like they have RV sites.

Riding 215 north from 64 up to where it meets 276 gets my favorite road vote. There's also a nice forest road between 276 and 215. OH! And don't miss Waterrock Knob on the parkway. It's a few miles west of 19 on the Parkway and has restrooms which are few and far between on the parkway. The thing to remember on the Parkway is to watch the road. It's easy for your eyes can get stuck on the view.

Riverside Campground and Laurel Creek Campground around the corner takes RVs.

There are many FS roads in the area, and the twisties are excellent! Most of the aggressive riding has been closed (some still around), but you will have great fun!
