Terrain: Much of this tree shaded route is lightly traveled by cars. Make sure that your brakes are in good working order because the first part of this ride is all down hill including several steep descents and hairpin curves.

For 17.5 miles you will pedal on flat roads that follow the serpentine course of the Farmington River and Sandy Brook. The rest of the ride is on rolling country roads with challenging short climbs alternating with gradual climbs. Most of these back country roads are narrow with no shoulders; extra caution is advised.

LEVEL: Moderate to Difficult
