We will be going from our home in WV to spend a week with a friend in Lexington, NC. Friend has not been in NC for very long and does not know the area very well. Any suggestions for fun and/or scenic trips near Lexington? Any info appreciated.

Highway 8 South head down around High Rock Lake.
If you take HW 8 down to HW49, Turn left, go to HW 109 ( 2-3miles) and turn south, You will ride down through Uwharrie National Forest, Really Pretty Right Now !

Or another idea, Take HW8 south to HW 49 and turn RIGHT, Follow the signs for Morrow Mountain State park !! A nice scenic trip. And not too far !

I just read in another post that there is a Bike rodeo in salisbury NC on Sun. the 15th (about20mins from Lex.) It's on Julian rd right off 85 !! Bike show, Bikini contest etc.

Enjoy Lexington, I live just 8 miles outside Lex. down at the lake.....

If you get hungry, Go to Christo's Reasturaunt on Cotton Grove rd. Right in the business area off 85 at exit 91 (Wal-Mart exit) There Biker friendly have a bar and some Great food/Wings !! Amd Whatever you do while in Lex Get some Bar-B-Que !!!
Sat. the 21st is barbeque festival downtown Lex.
Downtown area is decorated with concrete Pig's ! About 100 of them,(pigs in the city!) It's fun just riding around and checking them out, They have all Different themes, even a biker pig thats dressed in leather,,Just cruise around back and forth around Main street ! And watch for the pigs standing on the sidewalks.

If your a NASCAR or Dale Earnhardt fan, Head north up highway 8 (old 52) about 15 minutes to Welcome, NC Childers Racing museum ! Right in the middle of town! Dale Earnhardt museum!!

Really thought from Lexington, Just take off ! Any direction you go will Yeild something worth seeing !!!!
