Response to Blue Ridge Parkway North of Mount Mitchell Finally Reopens


The closure of the bridge will result in bicyclists taking US 221 from Holloway Mt Rd to the Blowing Rock cutoff. The loop (from Boone to Blowing Rock around Grandfather and back to Boone)is a heavly used cycling route Although the elevation gain is less steep heading north on 221, the road is narrow and will be traffic filled. The 1.5 mile climb up the parkway from Sims Creek is brutal. Rode it 2 weeks ago.
