most of the reviews on the board have an element of recycling - if you do a search you can probably find what you're looking for - or just ask - you'll get plenty of comments

MTBR has a section for trail reviews.

I don't know if it would be feasable for road riding because most of us just ride out of our front door and go. OTOH, dirt lovers travel to their favorite trail and then begin their ride.

It may not be a bad idea but I could see it easily getting out of control. Too many starting points, mileages, variations, etc.

Many clubs offer cue sheets for there more popular rides online. I'd look into that. Here's an example:

If you have a specific destination, just ask here. We've got people all over the place that can help you with info.
Do you mean like trail reviews?the bull

There are just too many roads!
A trial is a loop and its easy to say.
A road ride can consist of a turn anywhere.
It would also be confusiing to describe a route to someone.
I think that this is the answer your looking for.
Yup! Just like Trail Reviews!DUOHEAD

Not so difficult in my view....!

e.g. Last fall there was a post on Colorado National Monument as a great ride-pics attached-options on start points-possible weather, etc, etc.

I was in Colo. so checked it out & had one of the rides of my life!

Trails often require alot of detail to descibe...this can be applied to roads as well!

WHose the big cheese on this site anyway??? Doug somebody, right? Take me to the top! I wanna talk to this guy!!!

Thanks for all responses!! CHEERS!!

in Grand Junction, CO for 8 weeks a couple of summers ago and out that way there are very few roads to ride so yes a Route Review would be practicle. But for the majority of the country, there are simply too many options.
