This was the route I took on one summer weekend. I just wanted to ride and chose back roads and it turned out to be rather interesting. Staying in Raleigh I dont find many roads close by and I ride a supersport so long rides are far and few.
The route mapped here is average not too many curves, they are just back roads. Once you enter Holly Springs the traffic is a little high but after a diviation you are on your own. I barely saw a cop or two on the whole ride. After a while you come to Aviator Brewing comapny where you can rest have a cold beer and continue on. Highway 201 just opens up, there were no cops and good two lane roads and you can haul ass. I think i could have gone further but I decided to stop at I40 and returned via the interstate.
To sum it up it´s just relaxing back roads and an easy get away from the city traffic. I would rate it Average or slightly less.
