Is that a private road or a MUP or what? Sure is straight. Doesn't look like "night" to me either, but maybe you have some very good lights!

You seem to have some extra "IMG" tags in your text...they shouldn't be showing. Here's what a picture should look like:



If you copy the URL from Photobucket's "IMG Code" box, you don't need to use the "insert image" icon () in the editor here...just paste in the code from Photobucket. If you copy the URL from Photobucket's "Direct Link" box, then click the icon in order to get the "IMG" tags.

I'm in so IL not far from St Louis. This route is the one the Metro East Cycling Club rides on Monday nights. I can't keep up with them so I ride it alone most of the time. I usually take my camera just in case I see a good shot.

How about that, no tags. Thanks guys!

Hate to say it Mud but the test isn't working- Can't see a bike or slice of PIE anywhere.

Nice pics, mud. Looks to be a great place to ride. But...

If those undulating bumps are hills then I'm no longer gonna tolerate being told I'm a flatlander!




By the way. It's a curious optical phenomenon, but when the wind is in your face even the downhill portions of the undulations look like uphill stretches
