This was a nice ride, but I wish it were longer. We tried lengthening it by using the map, but many roads in this area are incorrectly shown as paved on the map, when they are actually dirt. All of the roads on this route are paved, but many surrounding roads are dirt, so be careful if you're trying to lengthen this route with a map only. Also, The restaurant "It's about Thyme" is closed on Monday.
