For training I was told to find a nice 4-7 mile loop that I can gauge myself on and repeat for larger numbers. So I went looking for something that might serve in my area. This is a possible route, I will try to give it a try on Sunday. Saturday I have a ride planned with a friend (the writer of On a clear Day blog) so I won't be able to get to this before then. I am looking to improve my speed and a 5 mile loop should be good for that.
