ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Your ride out of Campbellville will be mostly flat for the first 2 km. After you turn left onto Twiss Rd. you will have a noticeable climb for about 1.2 km until you turn right onto Side Rd. 3. This small section of road, just shy of 2 km, is probably one of my favourites roads in Southern Ontario. It's small, quiet, the trees overhang the road, it twists and curves and goes up and down; it has everything. There is one thing to watch out for in the spring and that's a coating of sand that may still be covering the road left over from the winter sanding operations. So be careful, going down and around the corners.

A series of back-roads will bring you onto a slightly busy Centre Rd. I say busy because the roads up until now have been really slow and mostly traffic free. As you turn right from Concession Rd. 11 onto Centre Rd. it becomes clear the road goes up. The rollers, which are not that steep, will last for about 6.5 km until you turn onto Concession Rd. 9 (aka. Victoria Rd. S.). After this point things will level out and you can regain your breath.

The northward journey up to Regional Rd.34 on Victoria Rd. also has rollers, but they are small and easy to negotiate. As you turn right onto Regional Rd. 34 you'll notice this road is certainly busier than what you have experienced so far. It's one of those necessary "link up" roads that are hard avoid in certain situations. Put your time trial helmet on and sprint the 2 km to Watson Rd. where you will turn right. Watson Rd. is much the same as Victoria, except you are now heading south. The break in the route comes at around the 34 km mark at the intersection of Watson Rd. and Leslie Rd. You can either keep going south and suffer the hills ahead or turn left and refer to directions on the alternate route Campbellville 44 km.

If you decide to head south a good size climb is staring you right in the face. Once on top you'll have a fantastic view of the rolling terrain and the farms that dot the landscape. The descent has a few quick bends, but be careful of the sand that may be present on the road. After you turn left onto Centre Rd. (which isn't marked) you head south toward your final challenge of the day; Mountsberg Rd. What you are about to climb is immediately obvious as the hill is hard to miss. As you climb the hill in front of you, you can think about the next one, which is just up the road that is equal in both size and gradient. Both climbs are unrated, but I think they should at least warrant a Cat 5.

Once you have regretted taking the hard way a few quick turns will bring you back to Campbellville Rd. and 1st Line where you will meet up with easier alternative route. Back together again, a short, flat ride will bring you back to the cars.
