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

Your going to have a great time. I really enjoyed the park. It was my first time visiting it. The ride up Logan is pretty amazing. Last summer it was very torn up. Big chunks of gravel riding and muddy patches. Hope it's in better shape this summer for you.

WOW to all of the above.

Living in an urban environment you have to wait until the GP circus is in town and the roads are closed:



I had a blast riding around the track.

This was taken on a usually busy road but on Chinese New Years:



That's as quite as it ever gets.
