Nice little loop starting in Hiawatha and going through Palo, Center Point, Urbana, and Shellsburg. Mostly highway, with a few slow sections through the towns.The stretch from Urbana to Shellsburg is very straight. But, afterall, this is Iowa, and we do like things laid out in a grid :-). There are some nice, gentle curves in the rest of the ride.Road are generally county blacktops in good condition. Few bumpy sections, and Tower Terrace road going west out of Hiawatha has a section that has been patched pretty heavily, but still not too bad.
