By Tricia Szulewski, Assistant Editor

Our 4 Bucket List Motorcycle Rides in the West article, written by WRN editor Genevieve Schmitt, showcases some incredible scenic rides America has to offer on the left side of the map. I’m lucky to have been able to ride two out of the four, considering my home is on the east coast.

1. Blue Ridge Parkway – Virginia to North Carolina

The Blue Ridge Highway spans the Appalachian Mountains and connects Shenandoah National Park's Skyline Drive in Virginia to Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains. There are hundreds of scenic pull-offs and I could easily spend several days just taking in the breathtaking scenery each one offers.

It became obvious where the Blue Ridge Parkway got its name on my first day riding it. The mountain vistas on a clear, sunny day offer views of multiple layers of "blue ridges."

The non-commercial, two-lane paved road is 469 miles long through Virginia and North Carolina. The maximum posted speed is only 45 mph, which can be difficult to maintain if you like to ride the twisty roads as sporty and quickly as I do.
