Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

We go there every once and a while for an Arbordog or to the Erie Beach for perch and celery bread.

Not very pretty pictures but kind of fun to ride for me:



An unfinished extension of a freeway over a marsh. On a Sunday there is no traffic at all.

My first post on these boards concerned the feasibility of riding skinny tires over drawbridge grating. Well that bridge is now obsolete. Here's a shot looking down at it from the new bridge:



Here's my empty road shot of the new bridge at the crest. If I wasn't the first to ride a bike over it I am among the first:

HG, I'm sure you will be familiar with this route...

This is technically not an ERA photo but here is a nice postcard that the Triscoli family sent me from Pizzeria allo Zoncolan, which is basically a purgatory moment--a small area of respite where one can choose either grandma's bolognese or suffering:

Notice the elevation at Liariis (actual start of climb).

It's not fun to ride over, but I do it quite often on the Prescott, WI drawbridge.

Fisherville? Port Dover? That's a fine part of the world.

I grew up in Caledonia and went to high school for one year at Cayuga. Never ridden around there, though. Are there any good hills?
