Western Twists Ride Preview
This 260 mile ride starts with a
scenic ride on Route 973 (Best
Of the NorthEast
Road) over hills, past farms, and along 4 different rivers.
Route 973 is the first of 7 BONE Roads on this route. That does
not sound overly impressive until you realize that Route 44 is
60 miles long and Route 144 is 75 miles long! Both of these roads are high
NER Top 100 Northeast U.S. Roads.
Western Twists Ride
This route mostly travels through
wilderness forest. Looking at the map below, you can see that
there are only occasional glimpses of civilization. Get gas,
food, and restroom stops while you can because you may not see
another stop for a while. Fans of the Golden Arches will be
State Forest Land
Did I mention that all of this
wilderness is hilly with great curves and good pavement?
Stop for lunch at the
Subway in Snow Shoe or try the Snow Shoe Sandwich Shop
There is nothing fancy on this ride!
After lunch, ride east on narrow &
curvy Little Marsh Creek Road/Marsh Creek Road (BONE Roads.) Woo
