Motorcycle Benefit Ride for Lesa Roakes – August 29, 2009

July 28, 2009 by · Comments Off on Motorcycle Benefit Ride for Lesa Roakes – August 29, 2009 

Several individuals in the Amherst area are planing a motorcycle fund raising ride for Lesa Roakes to help her offset the costs of her ongoing treatment, (she’s battling cancer).

On August 29, 2009 from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM we will have a 90 mile motorcycle ride thru the Blue Ridge Mountains and along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the ride will start and finish at the Amherst County High School, where we will have two blue grass bands and a DJ, as well as raffles for door prizes and a meal.

I would like for you to pass this flyer along to as many people as you can, we would like to have a big turnout to show our support for Lesa during this most difficult time, I’m sure she will appreciate the support.

Economy slows traffic on Blue Ridge Parkway

As the economy decelerated and gas prices soared, annual visitation to the Blue Ridge Parkway dropped by more than a million motorists in 2008.

The 469-mile scenic highway drew 18.25 million visitors last year, down from 19.29 million in 2007, according to statistics from the National Park Service.

The 2008 visitation was the lowest in the past eight years and the first time below 19 million during that span.

Parkway officials have not traced a cause for the decrease in visitors, and Scott Bell, the Park Service official who tallies visits, declined to speculate.

Campgrounds along the parkway’s first 106 miles — which includes Bedford, Amherst and Nelson counties — saw fewer out-of-state visitors last year than normal, said Randy Sutton, an interpretive ranger for the parkway’s Ridge District.

Bikers along the East Coast usually flock to the ridge-top road, he said, but 2008 saw less motorcycle traffic, leading to a reduction in accidents.
