    Road Trip: VT to Brevard NC in April

    Have done numerous trips west in the past and considering a driving trip next spring and interested in feedback. Is 1000 miles each way too much driving to fit into a week of vacation? Any suggested stops along the way to break things up? We have heard the place is generally great but are interested in specifics once we are there. Our other option is flying to LV and spending that time in Hurricane but I am leaning toward this one if the logistics make sense.

    We road tripped from VT (Richmond) to Brevard about 10 years in a row. We would leave here in the evening, drive through the night splitting shifts to harrisonburg, VA (about 11 hrs). Get some breakfast and do a great ride in the Shenendoah's out of Stokesville. Then it's about 5-6 hours to Brevard after. At the end up the trip we would just hoof it back in one push of about 17 hours. Well worth it. Started road tripping to Brevard in 2003. Lots different now, but the trails are pretty much the same. Great, big mountain backcountry.

    Definitely, agree with the halfway point stop in Harrisonburg. Tons of great riding there that is usually open year round. Western Slope is a great network just outside of town if you don't want to get to far off the main drag. You could also stop in Stroudsburg, PA which is about halfway-ish between VT and Harrisonburg. And of course there is Roanoke that would be worth a stop too. New bike park in Bedford is something that has to be ridden.
