Our country is densely populated, and while things were better during the first couple of COVID-19 months, everyone is back on the road these days. Had to wait a couple of minutes before the OAP's on their e-bikes were out of the way and I could take this shot:

You won't regret it, the parc des volcans is of unforgettable beatuy, IMO. For an 8 hour high definition livestream of this area, check out the upcoming TdF stage Clermont-Ferrand / Puy Marie!

Rolling hills. Always in the drops. It's a control thing, hands next to the brakes and barcons.

I’ve been checking out the logging roads east of Seattle...long,quiet roads. On Sunday I saw 2 bikers and a couple dozen 4x4s...and a few gun “enthusiasts”.

There are 3 types of roads here in NW Wisconsin, 2020. The individual roads in each type pretty much look the same. And pretty much always open, so nice up here.

That and it is very cyclist friendly. There are 2 races (in non-covid years) around these parts. The Firehouse 50 is a 50-mile road race and the Chequamegon Fat Tire 40 is a single-track/all-terrain race. So even though it is a bit Deliverance out here (a guy and his 2 dogs chatted me up a bit too much when I was taking some pictures of the Marengo river), you stop in the quicky mart or wherever, they are genuinely interested in your ride.

Even have a coffee house in Cable, population 400-ish, for cycling folks. Better than where I live with a population of 40,000-ish. All I get there is "get off the f***ing road".
