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 am SO envious of the places you people get to ride. I need to start traveling with my bike.

You should have put "not safe for work" in the thread title. These pics are too good.

I love this descent, even though it's almost killed me once or twice.

Yes!! That view is very distracting. They should do something about that.

Eastern Texas near the smallish town of Crockett. My in-laws live there and my wife and I ride around there during the summers.

A couple shots leading us into Meyersdale, PA. The skies were angry, but forgiving as it only rained for about 5 minutes of this ride.


Not quite the lonely road, but it's all I got for now.

I opened up a photobucket account just for this thread. I'm loving these pictures so far, so I thought I would share mine.

This is towards the end of the St. Louis Riverfront trail. I'm guessing that this bridge used to be a RR track, but now its a cycling/foot traffic trail. There are a few touristy educational things along the way, but its pretty sweet to cross the Mississippi on my bike
