Beginning in the hamlet of Chelsea, Alabama, this loop explores the charming back roads of Shelby County southeast of Birmingham. You'll ride along winding country roads past cemeteries, churches, and farmhouses. Featuring nothing spectacular to see or do, this ride is the pleasant sort of bike ride that every bicyclist has in his or her basic repertoire. Pastures, cornfields and a one-lane wooden bridge await. Terrain: rolling hills to flat.

Pretty ride, but 2 major problems: 1. Right turn onto AL-25, there's a typo - route says right turn onto AL-2 S. 2. AL-25 is a 55mph road traveled by logging trucks, among other things. No shoulder made for a terrifying 3 miles.
