This is the best I can do. Sigh. It's Shelbyville, Kentucky.

No apologies ! I love rural farm roads. We've got some nice ones up here too.

This one is a shot of both Canada and the US.

I was cycling down 0 Avenue in BC (the road in the foreground of the photo), and took a picture of Border Avenue (I think) in Washington. The bit of grass between the two roads is the border.

I'm riding out from Anchorage to Shelbyville tomorrow, by way of Duncan Memorial and Todds Point. About 60 miles RT for me. It's gonna be in the mid 70's and sunny - I'm taking the day as a vacation day to ride :)

or just a decent camera in the hands of someone who has learned how to use it properly.

as the old saying goes.... it's not the size that counts....

great pictures everyone!

Awesome photos! I rarely take pics while riding. But I did manage to snap some shots on a quick loop outside of Bodega Bay, CA.
