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

I haven't ridden it yet, but may do that this week sometime if the pea-soup fog lifts.

This is great without pages of comments between the great pics. Just spectacular.
I encourage everyone if they want to comment, include a pic.
I really really have to take my camera on rides more.

Col Du Galibier. I was shooting kodachrome 64 here and haven't scanned most of the slides yet (years later)

Kaanapali Coffee Farms, West Maui hills. Cycling advantage = no cars. Cycling disadvantage = red tires.
