Curved Roads in After Effects

So I have been working with After Effects for a few weeks now and really love it. However, I've tried finding tutorials on how to make a smooth animation of a curved road, and didn't find anything related.
I have a character riding a motorcycle - he is centered, while the road is going to be in motion. The road has a white fill, with a black stroke (so basically you will just see the edges as the road is turning).
I made a road with a curve (see attached photo), then scaled it so that it moves way past the borders of the scene. I then changed positions with keyframes. -However, the road goes outside the scene during RAM Preview, I'm guessing it is because I am trying to animate the X and Y-positions at the same time.
I was wondering if there is an easier way to make a road like this? As you can see in the attached photo, it is going to be a really simple animation and a really simple road.
