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

Passo dello Stelvio the day before Stelvio Day, which would not be empty.*







* Technically, this is not "ahead" since we descended down into Bormio and not Prato allo Stelvio but nobody has to know .

Looks like a awfully narrow road. Does it handle two-way traffic?

Ride in local mountains of Southern California

October 3, 2010 G&#.jpg(click pic)close up of road out to Baldy Village
October 3, 2010 G&#.jpgShot showing more of surrounding area

This is a ride I do from the house. It was almost a perfect day, just a little warm, but not bad. Forecast for tomorrow night is snow to be on the higher peaks. Looks like summer is trying to leave and winter is knocking on the door.
