Comment: Our group of three (one cruiser, one sport, one scooter) rode this route during the third week of May 2012. Impressions are similar to those written in the original posting. Some rough sections and occasional corners that braking. Roller-coaster like series of smaller hills make the route very entertaining. Be on the lookout for slow moving traffic. Highly recommended.
