Loudon Rd & Limkiln Rd *GRAVEL* - April 21, 2007, 05:36 PM

Just a heads up...from Rt. 55 onward a lot of roads have a considerable amount of gravel.

Give yourself a buffer to react especially on Limekiln Road!

Actually Snickerville is in good shape.. Blue Ridge Mountain Road is good.. Airmont is ok too.. that's the beauty of that area.. alternate routes everywhere!

My advice is in the early months...whatever road you ride give yourself a safety buffer just in case there's debris on the road.

I was on Bristow road the other day...road was fine then mid-corner (blind turn) there was a stream of water. Both tires shifted over about an inch and it wasn't a big deal but had I been railing through there it could have been a bad thing.

Also, the wind knocked down plenty of branches so that's another item to keep an eye out for!
