Humpback Rocks Out and Back (38, B & C, VH)
June 18 @ 8:00 am
Starting at the Humpback Rocks Visitors Center at milepost 6 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the route heads south on the Parkway, climbs up to the Raven’s Roost overlook, and continues on the Parkway for another 14 miles. The route then turns around and retraces the Parkway back to Humpback Rocks Visitors Center. There is a lot of climbing, but nothing is too steep.
Saturday rides will now include a C group ride. We encourage our C riders to come out and join us.

Hi Connie. I had reached my maximum at 16.2 miles out after that four mile climb (I have had a chest cold/bronchitis for the last week) and decided after rearing at the overlook to head back north. I asked a tall cyclist in a red jersey who was south-bound to let you all know that I was and hopefully he did so.
Thanks for leading this ride on a temperature perfect day. I nearly got blown over passing Humbacksat that sweeping left curve when a strong gust hit my bike. I was glad I wasn’t riding 55mm wheels!
See toy again soon out there.
Hi Rick. Thanks for reporting in. I didn’t hear anything from the cyclist you talked to. It was gusty out there, but the temperature was perfect! Hope to see you again soon.
Sorry so late to say–but I plan to be there!
Sorry y’all. I’m going to have to back out for this morning. I’ll see you all again in July.
I’ll be there! 38 is a big stretch for me but I’m up for the challenge! Will stick with C group!

I will be there! First CBC ride for me!
Chris and I will be there. With all of this climbing, we usually end up at a C pace.
