This is one of the most beautiful rides of ever done. It has great, high speed, winding downhills and long, steep, challenging climbs with stretches at over 20%. It has smooth and rough roads, beautiful mountaintop vistas, and a relatively long stretch of lakeside riding. Lots of fun with minimal traffic on a weekday, and I only got chased by dogs once.
