    Do you mean the wiggly one that is really nice for climbing in and out
    of valleys, and looking at the scenery but not quite as flat and fast
    as the freeway..?

    The real cracker is thesouth eastern end where you get to climb up out
    of the valley to the pacific hwy, or onto alpha rd and merge onto the
    end of the gore hill Fwy/Warringah Expressway.

    Yeah - its OK. But aimed at a different level of cyclist - the
    cruiser for pleasure, and not the type of person who would use the
    freeway in the first place.

    Give it a crack and see what you think. Its nice for a change.

    Your other option is the Pacific Hwy of Death! Hmm perhaps the scenic
    route will be preffered.

    (Who builds tunnels / but doesn't like freeways becoming tollways but
    thats another argument - Guess thats a mojor compromise being a
    geologist in the city :/ )
