This will be a spirited ride, NOT for newbies (sorry).

Disclaimer: I am only showing you the roads, you are making the decision to ride them or not. I am NOT instructing nor teaching in any way. You must ride your pace and your style. If you get in over your head it is entirely your fault.
On that note, I will let everybody know what the roads ahead are like and give as many warnings as possible, BUT, I can't know the condition of the spot you choose to ride on.
