Scenic Guided Motorcycle Tours by MotoPlaN8 Handlebars

I offer multiple different ways to experience the outdoor scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the cities that lie within. Bring your own motorcycle and follow one of my six guided tour routes from a five hour experience to a two day adventure. Three of the tours are street oriented while the other three are adventure bike oriented and geared towards off-road.<br>We will interview via phone or email first. Then, we will meet in Roanoke and go over the machines, safety gear, and routes before taking off and enjoying the beauty offered by the Blue Ridge Mountains. We will experience the Blue Ridge Parkway and other iconic destinations along the way, then we explore deeper into Appalachia on my favorite scenic country roads to other hidden treasures speckled across this amazing countryside. We return back to civilization with a cruise through historic towns and finally downtown Roanoke. To end such a spectacular day, a final destination of a landmark overlook.

We came specifically to see the Dorothy Gillespie exhibit. And, we were quite impressed by the amount of her colorful and energetic work on display. Equally impressive, and greatly appreciated, were the corona virus safety procedures that were in place. Upon entering the building, we were immediately greeted by a young employee, wearing a mask and face shield, who explained the procedures to us; he would have given us masks if we had not already been wearing our own. We followed the one way signs, observed the prominently posted signs at the entrance to each gallery with person limits, and used the hand sanitizer stations that were found throughout the halls. My wife has been a long-time volunteer here and she enjoyed saying hi to a number of the staff and volunteers she had not seen for quite some time.

I recently visited the Taubman for the first time and was so impressed. The building itself is architecturally interesting and beautifully constructed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The cafe was an unexpected find. And there are all sorts of comfortable places to sit and rest in and near the galleries. The exhibits themselves were gorgeous. A wide variety of art genres made for a feast for the eyes.

I had some spare time. I decided to walk over to this museum. I was glad that I did. It is a very nice place with nice art and nice people. In a city about railroads, it is a great site.

We decided to expand our horizons a little bit and give this museum a try while doing a weekend getaway in Roanoke. This is a lovely attraction, definitely worth the visit whether you like art or not I think there's a little something for everyone. A bit more contemporary than I would have cared for but still happy that I made the effort to visit. Love the Norman Rockwell and some of the more traditional pieces. The staff was very friendly and informative. They were setting up for a wedding I believe that was happening after hours, lovely location for a function. Pleasant surprise this visit.

Took the kids to see the Pop Art special exhibit and play in Artventure -- discovered the treat of the current Huntopia exhibit. Exhibits change often and typically feature a great variety of works. Beautiful space with a cafe, gathering areas (with checkers today), places to relax. Free general admission with special exhibits, ArtVenture (or just get a membership and become a supporter). Check out the events calendar. Staff has grown more responsive to visitors.
