Earlier in the week I wrote a post about the curvy road feature in Garmin’s Basecamp software for planning routes and transferring them to your GPS. I said I’d play with it a bit and see how it went. Well, I haven’t ridden a route planned with it yet but I have let the software work its magic. I gave it a Point A to Point B route from Jasper, GA to Blairsville, GA. I let it use the shortest route and then the curvy roads option. The shortest route came in at 58.4 miles and an estimated trip time of 59 minutes. The route is all on Georgia Highway 515/US 76 and it’s on a 4 lane highway with a grass median between the opposing lanes. But, it is a nice ride if you’re in a hurry. The curvy route was 75.8 miles and had an estimated time of 1 hour and 59 minutes to complete. The curvy route takes twice as long to complete but sure does look a lot more fun. I can attest that some parts of the curvy route are even curvier than the map lets on.
