Romeo Montague

5 Star Route / Ridden and Reviewed by Gravel Girl & Captain ‘O

If you can’t remember that college class on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, let us speed you through cliff notes. Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet came from families that hated each other and this love story didn’t end with a white dress, church bells, and confetti.

But, hopefully you’ll have a better story when you do this route. The start and finish is in the quaint town of Montague (O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?). The route loops through beautiful farmlands with constant mountain views north and south and an abundance of wildlife: we saw herds of antelope (video, watch in full screen) and deer, along with enough birds of prey to have us wondering if they were employed by local farmers, stationed every half mile, as mice and gopher patrol. **Click to Read More
