Centering on the Housatonic River Valley, winding across its plain and rolling along the foothills this ride is virtually flat its entire first half, once you climb the initial mile-long hill. Passing cottages and cornfields, the long stretch from the village of South Egremont to Sheffield is particularly pleasant. Terrain: rolling hills with only two climbs longer than .5 miles. Moderately smooth road surface and usually light traffic. Traffic/Safety: watch for heavy traffic along Rte. 7. Also, take care when crossing the railroad tracks at the end of Sheffield-S. Egremont Rd. and at the intersection of Routes 7 and 41, just after crossing the Housatonic River.
