Decided to go above z2/3 because run would be slower due to knee and groin
lollipop x2. Fairly fast course with longish rollers. Effectively ridden the climbing is kept in check using the downhill speed to climb many hills halfway up. The pavement was overall good IMO. I would ride this course without hesitation. The only issue is the 7 mile out and back at ~mile 20 you do once on 1694. Its a fine road and reminds me of southern Anne Arundel County roads. Many on the FB page whine about how tight the road is and how fast some cyclists go. It wouldn't be issue if all the riders we're half decent cyclists. Many are not. They coast on the left, ride 2 and 3 abreast and don't easily yield to accomplished cyclists pedaling down hill. If this section were moved till after the lollipop x2 it would greatly reduce the congestion and add to the exhilarating stretch of pavement.
