Well, I'll take the high road with my response and simply say Lewisville, Texas USA.

Now, feel free to unbunch your knickers.

Moskesstraat, short, mean and picturesque cobble climb that will be part of the road World Championships in Leuven next year.

Much appreciated, @northbend. I'm fortunate to live in a big city (wouldn't like to miss that)... that I can leave behind on my bike in 30 minutes tops — wouldn't like to miss that either.

From a ride out in the Snohomish Valley in a warmer season

From another ride in the Valley in a wet season.

Somewhere out in Weyerhaeuser land near Index, Wa. A very memorable ride.

Pardon the modern fat bike, but this is one of the better gravel road pictures I've taken lately. This is from a few months ago in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

Somewhere between Selma and Uniontown, Alabama. A little ways beyond here, the road started to get really bad.

Yes, that's what I call the "Hairpin from Hell" - you can get some good speed coming down the hill towards it!

Brings back memories of a steep, hard ride. The descent into Livermore on the other side is great payback. On a clear day you can see the Sierras past the Central Valley on your left, Coastal Range in the distance on your right.
