Mountains to Sea

Anybody ridden all or part of the Mountains to Sea bike route in North Carolina? Preferably west to east. I'm in the process of planning the logistics of a solo credit card trip and am finding that services are few and far between.
Best I can come up with is 6 back to back centuries - doable but not exactly a laid back tour. Thanks.

I think the Mountains-to-Sea trail in North Carolina is hiking only. Have you found a site that indicates biking is allowed? I searched, but only found that the Mountains-to-Sea trail in New Zealand allows biking.

There is a Mountains-to-Coast ride: North Carolina Amateur Sports

Actually there are 2 Mountains to the Sea routes. One is a trail and like the Appalachian Trail is hikers only. The other is NC Bicycle Route 2, which runs from Murphy to Manteo and follows public roads. The group ride is held twice (?) a year and only covers part of the entire route and is fully supported for a fee. I think I solved my problem with AirBnB. Out of 8 days, I've now only got 3 centuries. Unfortunately they are all in the Mountains.

Thanks for the interest and help.
