Begin at the historical Shelby County Courthouse (6th & Court St.) and begin riding North on 6th St. to Cyclone Ave. Turn Right on Cyclone Ave. and ride East 1 Block to 5th St. Turn Left on 5th St. and ride North past “North Park” and then be sure to stay to the right when the street makes a “Y” and begins to head out of the city limits. (5th St. becomes M36). This route will also have a mixture of oiled surface road along with sections of graveled road. There will be a moderately steep hill as you ride and the road curves to the left as you climb the hill. After reaching the top of the hill, you’ll get a much needed coast as you zip along the stretch of road that is nicknamed “Dinesen Flats”. At the intersection of M36 and 1400th St. – (road turns into all gravel at that point), turn around and return to Harlan.
