    This guy is just plain wrong!

    I live in Northfield MN and I ride all the roads within 50 miles. Lowthian recommends biking on Hwy 60 easy of Kenyon. I think Hwy 60 east of Kenyon is one of the most dangerous roads for biking that I have ever seen. I have no hesitation in saying that it's the worst biking road in this area. Lowthian also recommends biking on Hwy 19 east of Cannon Falls. That's not the MOST dangerous road in this area (Hwy 60 is), but it's one of the worst. Based on those two choices, I don't trust Lowthian's choices anywhere else in the state, and I do NOT recommend this book. This guy has not done his homework and he has no business recommending biking roads if he's not going to do it.
