    I rode too far

    I think this sign means I should turn around:


    I've been to the end of Brickyard Point Road several times, but this sign was almost too funny. There is a boat ramp just ahead that lines up with the road.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    We have one of those here. It is the old Illinois Rt 13. The new 13 is built over Crab Orchard Lake. The old highway was the road before they built the lake. In my years as an adult there have been several people just drive into the lake. One was tragic. At night, the only thing that warns you is the sign. Otherwise, the road, passing lines and all, just disappear into the lake.

    How do you like this one? This is the end of Chain of Craters road in Hawaii (Big Island) where the lava just obliterated the road. I'm pretty sure the sign was added after the fact but it's pretty darn funny.
