Huntersville business park is a 50 foot wide, roughly 2 mile long asphalt road in the shape of an oval loop. The road also has a bike lane on both sides. This location is well lit and is popular for evening and night walkers, joggers and cyclist. I've logged many miles at this business park on my road bike back in the day. Good exercise after a long day at work.
