Get a copy of "Bicycling the Blue Ridge" and scope things out.

There's some long, steep, dry stretches on the BRP, and store/restaurants are usually a few miles down hill (with a nice climb to get back up!).

The speed limit is 45 mph or less, sight lines are usually decent, views off the road are good to great, and (except on weekends and during fall "color" season) traffic is moderate, so cycling is pleasant. (Be very careful if it's foggy, though.)
