Great course - Wish the flatter sections were in the beginning and then the hills at the end. But... then again...

Ronny, another great adventure you have planned. I just wish it would have covered some off road trails! But i guess we need to be inclusive of the roadies out there:) I figured you would have added the Peakwood Dr climb off of Avenham. Take a rt off of Avenham onto Somerset then rt on Peakwood for another mile long climb! Looking forward to it. Happy trails!

Another bonding experience with my Roanoke buddies that will keep us laughing for another 20 years, if we can remember it.
