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

Blue Lakes Road, if visual memory serves. Arguably the sweetest road for bikes in the area. Upper Blue Lakes is pretty at sunrise:

Good memory, that was from a recent gravel I did up there. That and some of the passes are a short drive for me, so I end up riding there a lot.

We haven’t gotten much rain but enough over the last few weeks that we’re starting to see some green. Chilly this morning but a great day to be out on a bike.
