I stumbled across my new favorite roads ever on my ride today. I seriously can't believe how choice it is out here -- I felt like I was in the back seat on the way to pick out a Christmas tree. Beautiful scenery, winding country roads, low traffic, hilly. I was leaning hard into turns and pumping the brakes, on the way in. On the way out was slightly more work.
These are the kinds of roads you don't even tell friends about; the kind where you leave your phone at home so that no one can get a fix off your signal and crash the scene; the kind of roads where it occurs to you that the men who build just might have been killed to keep the secret.
