Take your mountain bike to Boone for bumps and jumps

Just west of the Blue Ridge Parkway is a year-round haven for outdoor recreationalists. Ever since Lance Armstrong came to Boone to train in the late 1990s, singing the praises of the area’s beauty and steep cycling climbs, the town has been milking his testimonial. With the opening of Rocky Knob, a $2 million facility, it’s now a destination for mountain bikers as well.
