early christmas...

got an early christmas present in the mail the other day from america rides maps... they were thoughtful enough to send me one of their latest maps, best roads north and south of asheville, nc... an excellent way to share the spirit of the christmas season...

what's really nice is they've been making improvements to the maps. they've added road mileage for the roads on the map. that's really nice to have when you're trying to plan out a route or two for the day. they've also improved the detail and resolution of the maps. it makes quite a difference compared to the older maps - gives you a better idea of the area... and finally, a must have for bikers, recommended places to eat. the improvement to the maps is remarkable.

i really like this particular map for two reasons. one, it joins several of the other maps, making a series on the blue ridge parkway. two, it will fit in nicely if i can pull off my plans to ride the blue ridge parkway with my father-in-law next year.

looks like i'm going to have to head over to their web site and order a couple more maps to complete my collection of the blue ridge parkway series...
