Thursday, April 8, 2021 by F.D.Agree with previous review. Especially the route between nodes 11-24-60-30 would be better replaced (boring and ugly brick road with cars racing by).

Monday, August 17, 2020 by Ivan PrengelsOpinions differ. Personally, I found this to be anything but a fun or beautiful route as I am not a fan of endless right-of-way, which is common here. I also didn't really like the surroundings.
