Empty road ahead photos

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

One of my favorites from Little Tujunga Canyon. I know, there are bikes in it and yes, we do go up that road in the top of the pic.

The bridge is Hwy 154 near Santa Barbara.
