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

The Pacific Electric. The further east you go, the emptier it gets. Which is a shame, as it could be continued for miles and miles east. But with nobody on it, that seems unlikely.

This shot is one of my local climbs. The road was damaged years ago and closed to traffic but perfectly passable with a road bike. It's a wonderful climb.

Started riding when the radar showed the rain was on the way out yesterday, and ended up with most of the ride devoid of cars like this:

That's Skyline Drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Clouds rolling up and over the top of the mountains made for some cool fog moments.
Stunning!

Freshly laid blacktop, like while I ate lunch at the lake they were laying it fresh. They were working on the oncoming lane up ahead when I went through.



A new favorite road.

How about an empty road that basically goes to nowhere?
