Up On Cripple Creek, up the Parkway then down Heartbreak Ridge and Jareds Creek Road

Started the ride with Johnny Calhoun and Steven Hughes but JC's back started giving him problems so he headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Curtis Creek Rd and back to his car.
It was icy in patches on the Parkway and closed down to traffic. The temperature was pretty chilly up at the higher elevations but exceptional conditions at Curtis Creek and on the climb up.
The hike a bike from the parkway up to the plateau was covered in snow. We hit a few more patches of snow coming down Heartbreak but mostly the trail was in great shape.
