A beautiful route. Ride from the Terpenning Recreation Complex to Stub Stewart Park and back.

I did this ride (the metric century) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The support was excellent, and the route for the most part was very good. some of the route through Hillsboro and the high traffic areas could have been better; if there is no way to avoid some of it, then on-course monitoring at the more dangerous points (like the left hand turns in traffic) would have been helpful. It was a very moderate ride, with only one major climb up into the State Park. The payoff was a fabulous descent and extended, slightly downward run on the bike trail for about ten miles. For a first time event, it was very well done!
