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

I'm glad to see someone finally found a good use for them...

Priceless 41 reasoning.

The one behind the ranger's station at Mt. Diablo because it means you're halfway up the mountain.

Plus imagine what goes on in a park late night? Homeless people bathing might be the most appetizing.

Bethpage Black, there's a entrance off of Round Swamp Road.

Fresh water fountain, bench, trash can and a great view.

Speaking of dogs drinking from fountains...

We've got some cool water fountains around here that have a lower side spigot for filling drinking bowls for dogs. They're great for quickly filling water bottles.
