We were grinding those gravel hills in Wilson Creek for an epic gravel bike weekend adventure. This was the first day of riding and it did not disappoint. Lot of miles and lots of climbing! The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina are so beautiful and awesome! This ride is hosted by some friends and happens every year. Its a nice small tightknit crew and I am glad they have invited me to this 2 years running now!
We rolled up the Blue Ridge Parkway and headed over to Jonas Ridge where we landed on the first stretch of gravel, Pineola Road. Its an epic 9 mile descent and lands us in the middle of Wilson Creek Gorge. From there we headed out to Maple Sally, then down Adako Road, and over to Anthony Creek Road. From there we went north up Edgemont Rd and back to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a 9 mile cruise back to the cabin.
