    Fine as of last week. Only construction is right at the intersection of Prince of Wales and 10 Sideroad and it's no big deal. (edit: there is also construction in the village of Hornings Mills, I usually don't go to that end)

    What time are you going? I'm hoping to do the same thing in the early morning.

    Rode it yesterday both East and West, River road. Was fine. Highway 10 going both North and South where there are doing road work. (Just before Prince of Wales, fine also) was a fun ride. There are a few quick elevations as the road is not smoothed out. Can get you out of your seat. Bumpy.

    Then you're missing the best part with new smooth pavement between Prince of Wales and Horning's Mills. BTW, the last section going up into the village of Horning's Mills was just repaved and there was no construction activity the last time I was there a few days ago.

    Be aware that Highway 10 traffic will be bad just south of Primrose because of bridge replacement and single lane traffic light operation just south of Highway 89.

    Yeah, I noticed it was newly paved in that area. I also saw the new 40 speed limit and community safety zone signs. That's also the section with the two long straightaways where the cops love to sit. Friend of mine got a ticket there. Nope!

    Its a good road for sure. I'll go on a weekday evening sometimes. Nobody on it at all. Just a 15 min ride from home.

    That's why I only ride on weekday afternoons, never seen a cop along any of that road on a weekday. I avoid riding on weekends due to more traffic and the likelihood of an increased police presence.

    One of my favorite roads!
    The next road north, Dufferin Rd. 21 from Honeywood is also nice, but not as curvy, with a fantastic view.

    Well if you want curvy go another 3 concessions to the north on 124 and turn right onto County Road 9. One of my favourite roads.

    "Surfaced" as in pavement? It's not.

    There's a ton of stuff in that area for the dual-sport riders to play on.
