Plan Your Fall Ride, Part 2?

Have you taken the time to plan a fall ride to check out the beautiful foliage? Last week we covered a few places offering spectacular sights for the season. If you missed that post, you can check it out right here.

If there wasn?t one close enough for you to swing by on a ride, no worries, we have a few more that you might want to check out.

Most noteworthy, is that we’ve indicated the ideal time to plan for the best colors of fall foliage, so you can mark it on your calendar.

  • THE BERKSHIRES, MASSACHUSETTS

The leaves begin to turn in late September in the Berkshires, and the peak Fall foliage season occurs during Columbus Day weekend in mid-October. This area also boasts spas, and is especially known for notable art and culture, as well as antiquing.

  • ENCHANTED CIRCLE SCENIC BYWAY, NEW MEXICO

Late September to early October offers the most vibrant colors along this eighty-three-mile loop. While aspens of yellow and dark orange may highlight the area, you can find other foliage boasting fiery bright reds and purple.

  • GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS, NORTH CAROLINA & TENNESSEE

Fall colors peak from early October through early November at one of the most visited national parks in the U.S. Since there are over 100 species of trees and 800 miles of scenic roads and hiking trails, you?ll get the full impact of the glorious fall season to enjoy.

  • LAKE OF THE OZARKS, MISSOURI

Pencil in the last two weeks of October for the best foliage viewing. It?s a great time for biking with temperatures dropping into the sixties, therefore you just might want to bring your leather. The area offers wineries, golf courses, hiking and a gorgeous scenic area for a ride.

Finally?What if You Don?t Want to Haul your Bike along to Ashville, NC?

What if you’re planning a trip to Asheville, NC and don’t want to haul your bike? Rather than miss out on a ride, the area boasts a possible solution. Gryphon Bikes in Maggie Valley rents Harley-Davidson motorcycles for the day. They offer scenic fall rides with group customized tours. Find out more information right?here.
