Hillsborough NW Loop - 45 miles

This route follows the Cycle to farm route some of us did but with a different beginning point and cutting off the southern section of the route. It's rolling hills and scenic countryside made for a good ride, so I'd like to ride it again.

Park in the gravel lot across the street from Hillsborough BBQ – 236 S Nash St, Hillsborough
We can have food and beer after riding at Hillsborough BBQ.

15+ mph pace. If you want to do the ride at a faster pace, that’s fine. I will bring cue sheets for all those who RSVP. If you would like a cue sheet beforehand, send me an email & I'll send it to you.
Remember to bring your helmet, water bottles, snacks, eye protection, an extra tire tube, pump or CO2. It is also a good idea to always ride with your ID, cell phone, insurance card and an emergency contact either written or programmed into your phone as ICE (In Case of Emergency).
Email me if you have questions.

      Get in a doorway and hold on to the doorframe, just click in and out for like 30 min so it becomes a reflex.

      I wanted to try and express how much I enjoyed today's ride. Instead, I will simply agree with Lou. What can I add to that? Well said!

    While I was sleepily putting together the cue sheet the other night(modifying cycle to farm sheet), I put in the wrong distance for a segment and now see that the route is 45 miles.
