After the breakfast buffet at Hilltop Rest, we ride the 100 miles at slightly extra-legal speeds on a late Sunday morning. Not only did we never pass a car, we never even got behind one! These back roads that go nowhere are a hidden treasure. Its as if an apocalyptic plague had killed off everyone else and left us alone to enjoy the roads!
George's Gap is ideal if you have a 250 sport bike or other quick-handler. Don't bother if you're on a cruiser. Riding clockwise, the first leg is full if switchbacks and first-gear turns. Old 421 is ideal for prettying any bike. Ask the locals about this and you'll get a blank look. Not a secret for long!
I usually ride this clockwise. It's harder to get lost. Nice empty roads. Some stretches are quite curvy. Usually can do this whole route without ever having to pass a car. Great way to spend a couple of hours on a weekend morning, especially if you start with the breakfast buffet at the start/finish!
