Tally Ho/Swords Road - 518

Finally made it up to do the Swords Road - 518 ride today. Not too bad at all. Good Strom roads with lots of frost heaves and broken pavement. I understand why The Shepherd likes his Monday rides so much. There was no one on the road. Did the mentioned ride and saw 4 deer, 1 bear, 1 road crew and 2 cars. Pretty much had the road to myself.

I went down that road last Sunday, it's a bit bumpy but perfect for Stroms. Sport bike crowd wouldn't like it too much.

Hey Tom,

Not likely to happen. I am on holidays and The Shepherd just got a shift change so his free Mondays are over.
