Ride options of 47 & 68 miles. The 47 may be enough for many of you, but on the 68 you get to ride the Viaduct a second time in the opposite direction! Store and restaraunt options noted on cue sheet. Lunch for longer rides in Banner Elk. Most roads are low traffic, reasonable gentle climbs, some long. Some screaming downhills. These are all popular cycling roads, based on the riders we passed and maps showing routes. Chance to visit the Original Mast General Store in Vallie Cruis.One route TO JP Park (~1:30 from Kingsport): Take 19E from Elizabethton Past Roan Mtn.to Elk Park., then 194 to Newland, 181 at light to Linville.
