Flow Motion can be included in a bigger ride with Follow the Leader or a session route with Homestead Road.

       Flow is definitely abundant on this trail, but it is NOT for beginners. I suggest taking the hide and seek cut off that is located at the bottom of flow motion and do that a few times at speed before you tackle this.
