Road Biking North Carolina

I rode this route starting around 10:30 am, starting at my home near Old Salem rather than the Old Salem Visitor's Center. The Glade Street ride through the West End and the Hawthorne/Arbor and Chester through Warwick portions through the Buena Vista neighborhood were lovely this spring, as was the area near Bethabara. Traffic was light in these areas. The Reynolda, Polo and Peace Haven Rd portions were quite busy and I am embarrassed to report that my fellow Winston-Salem citizens tended toward the rude as I rode along, so please be cautious on these portions. The outgoing route is an easy ride, the return features a couple of short but steep climbs and a couple of longer climbs. These are not particularly difficult but may intimidate newer riders. This ride will remain a part of my repertoire for a quick in-town ride but it will be something done only when I don't have time to go elsewhere.
