At a Glance
The name is 69. DH69. Frankly, you donít have to be James Bond to look cool at the northern end of this route where the Engineering is wide and charismatic, the Pavement is smooth not shaken and tight corners are as rare as a natural nine. Not to mention that when it shoots as straight as a bullet from a 7.65 Walther PPK between Georgetown and the junction with TE-A. But be forewarned. This DH is going to test your mettle when the action starts south of Black Oak Rd. Here, the forces of Twistiness mercilessly crunch the road in the rocky jaws of the South Fork American River canyon, bending the asphalt thousands of feet down to the river and back up the closely treed west side. The climax is not only steep and tight, itís narrow. So please ensure you donít get stuck behind an Aston-Martin for the best part. And one more thing: do try and remember that this is a state highway. SPECTRE (the SPecial Executive for Collection, Ticketing, Revenue and Extortion) patrols it. So you might want to pick up a radar detector from Q Division on your way out. After all, you do want you to keep your license to ride.
