5 Best Motorcycle Rides That Will Blow Your Mind [US]
Do you often find yourself dreaming of the ideal motorcycle ride? A relaxing and thrilling adventure with you and your motorcycle…
Now you can make that dream a reality. Below are five mind-blowing best motorcycle rides in North America.
1. Route 50, The George Washington Highway, West Virginia.
This is definitely one of the best rides you will ever do. From majestic mountains to awesome river views, this ride is like your favorite little roadside diner with a menu that has everything you could possibly want. Delicious!
On this ride, you’ll go just north of the beautiful Monongahela National Forest, and you will pass Cathedral State Park along the way too—a great place to stop for a breather.
2. Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia
Sure, you have a cool motorcycle now. But, if you’re a geek at heart, this is the place for you. Packed with several historic battle sites, this ride will take you back to the days of the Civil War. Plus, the twists and turns make for an exciting ride—just be sure to stick to the 45 mph speed limit.
3. Pacific Coast Highway, California
The Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) is another great, sublime drive with breathtaking views of giant sequoias, ocean waves, and towering mountains. This 2,000 mile ride goes right from Northern Oregon all the way to Southern California, so remember to pack your swimsuit! We should warn you that the traffic on this route gets pretty packed during the tourism months, so you may want to avoid popular holiday weekends like Labor Day and the Fourth of July.
4. Cherohala Skyway, Tennessee
If you’re the kind of person that prefers falling leaves to the ocean breeze, then an autumn ride through Tennessee’s Cherohala Skyway is perfect for you. Take in sublime glimpses of the beautiful Tellico River or make a stop and catch a trout! Be warned, however, it can be desolate at night and extremely dangerous in the winter months. For safety, it’s best to go early on in fall.
5. Arkansas Highway 23, “The Pig Trail”
This beautiful ride starts in Ozark, which is between Little Rock and Fort Smith. Spring wildflowers and brilliant autumn colors make the route especially popular during spring and autumn. The route crosses the Mulberry River and the 165-mile Ozark Highlands Trail. But be alert—you'll encounter various hairpin turns, straightaways, and drop-offs where the cliffs seem to be right next to you.
Do you like collecting memos for reminding yourself of great rides? Don’t forget to stop by the general store halfway through the run to get a pin proclaiming that you have ridden "The Arkansas Dragon."
