When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
Got some new ones from my ride in Milton today
Just a shot from our ride today. Pretty much the whole day was open farmlands. This was just the only picture I took.

From yesterday's ride...
Icyclist here - thanks to Tulex, my photo of an open road started this thread, more than two years ago.
Here's another photograph I made a couple of weeks ago, in Yosemite, as I looped around Yosemite Valley on my bike.

There are two great threads on the Internet: "On the road today..." and this one.

A few more from France
Dutch corner - Alpe D'Huez. Rare to get a shot of this road without other traffic. That it was 39 degrees celcius that afternoon may have had something to do with it... It was my first day in France so I wanted to open the ledger; should have waited till the cool of the next morning.
Looking back at the last kilometres of the Col de Sarenne (one of the three ways to ride to the Alpe D'Huez ski resort)
North side of the Col de l'Iseran
Empty tunnel ahead.
Loop in the Vercors - just west of Grenoble
Start of the road to Presles
Near the top of the climb
Descended off the plateau and then rode back up via the Gorges du Nan. Looking back at the valley from where I'd come...
Looking further up the Gorges du Nan.
Simply fantastic pictures!!!
Arguing with ignorant people is an exercise in futility. They will bring you down to their level and once there they will beat you with their overwhelming experience.
From August 2009, in the Aveyron and Tarn et Garrone, Southwest of France.
Road to Sanvensa.
If we're doing France...
