Description: Riding 79 miles; guess the reason why 79?? Approximately 10 hills (4 tough steep hills) (each way) not bad for a 79 mile bicycle ride, approximate 2500 feet of climbing. Low traffic, smooth roads, probably last time this year to experience this scenic fall ride. No drop ride!
West Hwy 64, left (southwest) on Hwy 94, Approximately 1 mile to Hwy D, right turn (west), 14 miles to Sue’s home, around a bend on the road (right side)
plenty of parking available. Good idea, to map on phone, hence easier to turn into Sue’s driveway-white 2 story home. Town of New Melle–4 miles from Sue’s home has a service station, bathrooms available. Outhouse and in house bathroom available at Sue’s.
