Learning the Roads
This route starts and ends right at Chive & Thyme Café, located right on Route 31. There's plenty of parking. This route is 17 miles of rural back roads, so bring something to eat/drink with you on your ride. The roads take riders up the challenging Hogback Road climbs, with a spectacular view from the top. Wellington Road offers a very wide shoulder and offers a great opportunity to practice shifting through the rolling terrain. For those using gravel, hybrid or mountain bikes, a detour onto the Capoolong Creek Wildlife Management Area Path is a nice change to riding on the road and leads riders right back onto the course.
