WSBOB, let me know when you want to do this ride
Thanks for posting the question, Lynnef. Hadn't really thought through one of these excursions until now. Looks quite reasonable for a summer event.
Uh...yeah. I'm not in especially great shape, which, to enjoy riding Mcnamee and particularly Newberry, it sounds as though one should be. I thought from looking at the map that Newberry looked steep, but the '...whacking steep...' descriptive reference set me to withering.
On the map, further out, I notice NW Johnson and NW Rocky Point Road. They're probably steep too. For a little break, I've got off and walked before. No big deal, especially on quiet roads.
