Not a problem!
Do the route forward to make the ride, and reverse to get back to the start.
Now that should be a challenge!
Riding the Dragon in reverse LOL heck anyone can do it in forward gears

Really, you know what I mean though. Going out is one ride, but riding back on same road is opposite! All the right hand turns going out will be left turns heading back!
What you see in morning going out may not be the same thing as evening riding back.

The first pic was after the first quake and the second was after our trip there and after the second quake.
The second quake did a lot more damage than the first. What was quite interesting was the fact they put up supports on structures to hold them in place 'til permanent repairs could be made.
