both roads are good the first time or two. but there are so many more roads up there that are safer. both Deals gap and cherocola attract newbys that consistently ride above their abilities. many riders up there are from flat, straight road states and just don't have the skills. they all contribute to a very unsafe riding atmosphere that attracts the law enforcement. pirates congest the area and turn a good road into a 15 mph parking lot. i could go on forever about my dislikes to that area...i prefer ANY road that intersects the BRP. ride them and you'll see the difference.
