Scenery

Just up the road from Clare's Cycle there is a great golf course on the left When you turn right at the end of Effingham St there is a nice Winery "Henry of Pelham" with some new pavement Then there is a relaxing drive through the town of Smithville and long straightaway to Ridge Rd All along Ridge Rd there is a great view of lake Ontario looking over the City of Hamilton On Ridge rd at the "Devil's Punchbowl" there is a huge cross that looks over the escarpment 90% of the ride is all farm land

Drive Enjoyment

The drive down Effingham has a few fast spots but we careful it gets tight in spots Some big sweepers on RR69 with elevation changes and a very interesting right hand curve that drops into a valley (I have had to give the right of way to cows before so keep that in mind) The side track down Fifty rd is quite steep and tight so watch your speed As above the run backup McNeilly rd has a 180 degree lefthander so keep an eye out for it

Tourism Opportunities

There are several winery's along the route or just a short drive off it Henry of Pelham, Rockway Vineyard, Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery, Ridge Rd Estate Winery If you are a woodworker in Smithville there is a shop called "The Wood Shed" lots of odd pieces for for projects On Ridge rd just before "New Mountain Rd" there is a pull off called "Ridge Rd Lookout" Also on Ridge rd at the "Devil's Punchbowl" there is a pull off to stop and look around
