Default Ky 227 too many curves

I know what you are going to say...no such thing, but if you are into curves, this northern Kentucky road has them in spades. I actually am tired of curves when I get to the bottom.

227 runs south from Rt 22 (at the Dry Ridge exit on I 75) down to Rt 460 at Georgetown Kentucky. Its mucho curvy. These aren't sweepers all though there are a few down by Stamping Ground at the southern end, but the majority are pretty tight back and forth curves. There is little time to rest, you'd better be riding your A game. It's a two lane with a double yellow centerline but because of its tightness you want to stay off the double yellow because a local may be cutting the curve coming the other way. Surface is decent. There are some cracks and some patches, but little gravel.I don't think the surface will cause you a lot of drama.

If you're in the neighborhood and want to wear the squareness off your rear tire, this road should do it.

A broad can have too many curves. A road cannot. I must visit this overly-voluptuous road.
