    I am SO envious of the places you people get to ride. I need to start traveling with my bike.

    best i can do is cross bay blvd on easter sunday. nyc doesn't get many empty roads ahead. i was off on the bike path, but the road was in the same condition.

    "...I thought about evening when the boys wash up, sing, eat, raise a cup of wine in honor of love and life, and waiting at the door, the bicycle, stilled, because only moving does it have a soul, and fallen there it isn't a translucent insect humming through summer but a cold skeleton that will return to life only when it's needed, when it's light, that is, with the resurrection of each day." -- Pablo Neruda

    You should have put "not safe for work" in the thread title. These pics are too good.

    That photo isn't actually by me, a friend of mine took it on a trip to Chile. The place is Caracoles de Portillo, near the Chile/Argentina border.

    I love this descent, even though it's almost killed me once or twice.

    Yes!! That view is very distracting. They should do something about that.

    Eastern Texas near the smallish town of Crockett. My in-laws live there and my wife and I ride around there during the summers.

    A couple shots leading us into Meyersdale, PA. The skies were angry, but forgiving as it only rained for about 5 minutes of this ride.


    Not quite the lonely road, but it's all I got for now.

    You guys are posting some really amazing pictures. It's cool to see where people ride.
    Why did you highlight my white text?

    I opened up a photobucket account just for this thread. I'm loving these pictures so far, so I thought I would share mine.

    This is towards the end of the St. Louis Riverfront trail. I'm guessing that this bridge used to be a RR track, but now its a cycling/foot traffic trail. There are a few touristy educational things along the way, but its pretty sweet to cross the Mississippi on my bike
