On Tuesday’s route, I was interested in taking a detour to ride over the High Trestle Trail Bridge. Easy path would be take State Highway 17 south out of Luther down to Madrid then get on the trail to Woodward. Then take County Road R18 north up to County Road E57 and take that back to Luther. this would add about 27 miles to the day.
I know the ‘official’ answer (don’t leave the route) Anyone familiar with State Highway 17? I’m not afraid of riding on state highways but I have zero experience on this road and would love some insight(traffic volume, shoulder? etc.)
If I do this I’ll probably add an extra ~10 miles somewhere to make it a Century as well.
