The routes in our area have their pros and cons. Which of these routes would appeal to you more?
1. Winding rural country road, rough patched pavement, narrow sandy shoulder, occasional traffic, big hills and great water views.
2. Wide shoulder highway, smooth pavement with some debris, heavy fast moving traffic, fewer hills.
We usually opt for the rural ride!
