Few straight section, but most are to get you to the tree covered, winding road. Most of the pavement is very good, some sections of pavement on Cedar Spring, and Mineral Spring Rd. are cracked and poor, however the Posted limit is only 40 on Cedar Spring, and Mineral Spring Rd due tot he Hairpins there. Other roads taken are mainly 80 km/hr.

Watch for ducks crossing as you come down the hill into the tight left from Appleby line on Side Road 4.

At Con 11 E and Center St. watch for the Bright Yellow Bakery signs, only open Fri - Sun, but if your there during that time, it´s worth the 2 Km detour to pick up a treat. Just follow the yellow signs with red arrows on it.. :-)

The Gore Rd is the longest straight section, it´s only 60 km, but lots of trees and a great time to relax and enjoy the ride. At the end of the road, your into Cambridge, but not for long, drop down south and your back in beautiful country.

Hope you enjoy.
