ROUTE DECRIPTION


This route wanders through some beautiful terrain which, as you will see, is pretty much made for cycling. The roads tend to be quiet, mostly rolling and often interspersed with periods of false flats. For the most part the roads are tree lined offering a wind break on breezy days and much needed shade when its hot. The route does start with an unmarked turn. As you leave the parking lot you'll quickly turn right onto Concession Rd. 10. After you leave the parking lot it is the first street on your right. It is about 1.5 km north of the Carlisle Community Centre. Once on Concession Rd. 10 you'll be cycling on fairly quite and well marked country roads. After a short spell on Concession Rd. 10 you'll turn left onto Millborough Rd. and head north. This road is a false flat for the next 7.5 km with a few a little ramps thrown in to keep it interesting. On your trip north you'll be surrounded on all sides by beautiful working farms that can be seen beyond the break and deep set forests often displaying cedar trees where many can be over a century old. I've also seen deer crossing the road in this area on more than one occasion. Keep a look out. You might get lucky.

At the top of Millborough Rd. the road veers sharply to the left onto Leslie and eventually left onto Watson. The minute you turn onto Watson Rd. a hill looms large right in front of you. The climb is easy to moderate, but you'll probably be forced out of the saddle near the end of the climb. At the top are some amazing views of the working farms below. You'll also be treated to an enjoyable serpentine descent all the way down to Centre Rd. where s few turns later will bring you to Victoria Rd. where you'll head north. About 1.5 km up the road is another little ramp that needs to be negotiated. This little climb always seems harder than you would expect. From a distance it looks pretty easy. Once you reach the top you'll soon take a zig zag pattern to get onto County Rd. 36. Just go over the bridge and continue going straight. It's easy to make a mistake here so please pay attention to where you are going. You'll now head further north where, if possible, the roads get even quieter.

At 1st Line you'll turn right and start your trip back to the car. This road has a slight downhill grade, but is punctuated by the odd short climb. 1st Line takes you to one of my favourite roads. Sideroad 3. Once you cross the tracks Sideroad 3 goes uphill all the way to Twiss Rd. The tree canopy completely covers the sky above. The road is not the best quality, but it's a great road non-the-less. After this fantastic road you'll turn right onto Twiss and continue your journey south. Once you get to the small Hamlet of Kilbride you'll turn right onto Kilbride St., which then turns into Centre St. for your final push back to the cars. As you reach the parking lot there is little stinger of a ramp that has to be dealt with before you reach the driveway. It's small, but it is at the very end.
