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

Not a long vista by any means but some weekend mornings I get the peace of the road by myself without needing to share with cars.

I'm usually riding with others, and put one or a few of them in the road ahead for most of my images.
