This is a classic Vermont back road, crossing the spine of the Green Mountains.
Bookended by two small towns, and running between two main north-south routes, it's easy to get to, and yet provides a relatively traffic-free, lovely mountain road and a challenging mix of fast sweepers and tight, first-or-second gear kinks.
Bread Loaf Writers' Center straddles the road about half way along, so watch for pedestrians. And moose.
The road condition sucks, but a lot of bikers use this road, and there is some good pavement and sightlines to make for a fun ride.
Eat at either end.
