I'm heading down to NC this March for training during spring break, technically, I'll be a few miles north of Mars Hill, are there any recommendations for good rides around the area. I'm hoping to get a good 6 days of riding in while I'm down there.
I've got a bunch of routes to ride now! Is there snow on Mt. Mitchell this time of year, or is it passable with bikes right now?
There is a good chance that snow is on the mountain. Even if not, the weather is risky up there this time of year. Another good route to consider is the Burnsville Metric route. Its not far from where you are staying and, it is a very nice route.
There are also a bunch of routes in and around Asheville posted in the "cue sheets" section on the Blue Ridge website.
