Don't be sPOoKeD and DaRe to ride the annual HaPpY HilLL-O-wEeN!!!
A largely rural ride through Parker county with only a few scary hills, but not too many. No monsters will await as you crest your climbs, or creep from under a bridge! Overall, the routes are a treat with patches of heavily shaded trees and the crisp timely colors of Fall. Your routes of choice are: 35, 48, 60 and 80 miles. The latter half of the 80, 60 and 48 similarly go further south into Aledo and utilize the eastbound slight downhill grade of Bear Creek (Beware: the namesake monsters lurking on the edge) The 35 has been edited from years past for a more southerly route and additional country roads. All routes re-join the last 5 miles to conclude by cruising the engagingly beautiful Jenkins Rd until it exits onto the easier southern direction under I-20. This year the shorter routes (48 and 35) do not enter the eeerrry and treacherous valley of the Squaws...no, not a wickedly evil ruse. The 80 and 60 will begin their routes by entering the abominable and haunting valley. If they survive...their fables they will tell!! The routes are predominately quiet from traffic, more-so Bear Creek with its atypical appearance of an intended cycling path and the never-presence of cars. Expect a route with moderate and varying terrain with interspersed rolling hills and flats.
