Winedy or windy road?

I was chatting with my friend.........chatting about his drive from point A to point B. I asked him "is the road windy" and he said it was windy in Edmonton. I then realized this is a funny word. How do I say or spell: the road was windy from edmonton to calgary? not windy. Is it winding road?

thanks

So confusing.

Yah that would work. "Is the hwy curved" :) thanks, although that could mean something else too. But I think it makes sense and would be understood by most.

What about this: I had to wind my watch, but then the wind blew my hat away so I had to run after it.

I have a new found appreciation for people learning the English language. So many meanings for every word.

Winding - - as in the long and winding road.

English is so inconsistent it's actually fun to confuse non-english speakers.
