This is a more realistic motorcycle ride to Tazewell and back. According to my Garmin GPS software this takes 4.5 hours to ride. I've ridden, at one time or another every road on this route and realistically once you factor in break, fuel and food stops you are looking at an all day ride. Pretty ambitious for a bunch of old retirees like us :shock: But, if that's what you want to do....

Too ambitious for me, but there looks like a couple of ways I could shorten it …

some other fun stuff going down the parkway about 35 miles is the bluegrass music center, which usually has afternoon locals playing bluegrass.
