This is a typical North Carolina farm country route that gets you quickly out of Durham by way of the Duke Forest. The route mostly covers farmland on both sides, which is great for a nice spring day.
Given its proximity to the city of Durham, this is a great way to get some twists in. 751 is well-paved and windy, and as you get out into farm country the road quality is general great, but as always, be careful for grass and other farm debris which can be on the road and hidden in the shade of trees. Be sure to turn off Arthur Minnis onto Borland, because there's a section of Arthur Minnis that isn't paved. Generally these are well paved roads though.
There's intentionally very little on this route, but it's only 27 miles long. If you head out and realize you're out of gas, you can head torwards Hillsborough for a gas fill up and be back on the route in no time. Saxapahaw's a great little town to ride into -- the general store has all kinds of fresh food and the Haw River Mill has a local brewery with a patio. The Haw River is nice to dip your feet into on a warm day.
