Mileage measured by Schwinn-approved pin wheel driven odometer and guaranteed accurate to no less than 15 percent (narrative). This included a short unpaved section. but in order to make it into a completely paved route, all you have to do is subsitute the Central City Parkway City s(u) for Viriginia Canyon s(u). Although in order not to deal with bicycling hostile city of Blackhawk (only gasoline powered vehicles allowed on city streets) you still have to take an unpaved detour.
