the roadways of niagara

Where I live in Niagara there are some amazing roadways around the rural escarpment area. Decew Falls, Balls Falls, Jordan Valley. it's the perfect place for my e30 because the roadways in some areas require agility and manuverability.
There are a select few roads I've mapped out and measured for time and distance. it's only 12.4 kilomteres and it's suggested that 16 minutes is a likely travel time. For the most part the traffic is consistantly light, and although residences are scattered back off the road, you always have to be aware of them.
It can be done in less than 16 minutes though, I think we all know this. The highlight portions boast steep changes in elevation, mid speed high visibility turns, and scenery out the rear if thats your thing.

I guess my question would be, what is your favorite area within southern ontario to drive?

Effingham st! damn good road when its not crowded or under construction.
nice bends and straights.
it takes you from st kits to fonthill.
also called Effinghill' by bikers

there are many good roads that branch off from it aswell.
But my favourite has to be Sulfur Springs, Off of Effingham.
Only known to those who live on it.
the road is closed during the winter season due to impassable conditions.
alot of fun!

im no racing scene buff but im sure thats why rally car driving is so fun. it's easy to get hooked on the feeling;

picture reaching the apex of a tight corner on an inclining ashphalt two lane, driveline wound up and ready to explode out of the turn, but upward inertia (uphill toward corner) reduces your downward force because after the apex of the corner the roadway dips down sharply once again. when im driving im completely aware of all of these factors and I just "feel" what to do next.
point is I think being a rally car driver would be damn damn damn good fun.
