At a Glance
Some roads are like an old friend – comfortable to be with, welcoming and dependable. This remote, crustily paved curmudgeon, however, is not one of them. Oh, it starts off pleasantly enough, sweeping south of Taylorsville along Indian Creek, where it graciously offers you some easygoing curves on the embankment. And there’s nothing objectionable about the mostly straight, scenic ride through the mountain-backed ranches and hayfields on the flat Genesee Valley floor, either. That’s why you’re so taken aback by the temperamental Pavement, fickle, off-camber Engineering and all the sand in the corners on the canyon climb out of the valley. Even when the camber improves, the asphalt smoothes and the sand settles down around Antelope Lake, the high-maintenance S-curves can be very demanding. You can live with the fact there are very few curve advisories, but you’d think a center line that wasn’t faded to invisibility would be a basic courtesy. You miss its guidance, especially when the road widens on the tightly sweeping FSR 01 section. The yellow finally brightens up – albeit as a solid double – on the steep, scenic final descent into Janesville. Thing is, at the same time the views over the Honey Lake Valley are attracting your attention, the steep switchbacks are bumpy enough to betray you if you don’t keep an eye on them. As with most difficult and complex personalities, it may take a few encounters to really bond with this DH. But once you do, you’ll be riding buddies for life.
