Cruising north on SH 51, something caught my eye. I turned and noticed a double-track path off the highway. I’m sure I’ve seen it before. I’ve traveled this route many times. At first glance it appears to be a private drive. Rolling to a stop, I took a closer look. Maybe it’s a road.
This was not my intended route for the morning, but it warranted investigation.
Before long, it was apparent that I was riding on a network of very lightly traveled county roads.
I never made it to my original destination, but flexibility allowed me to discover a whole new area of unexplored countryside. Perfect for someone with a good country bike.
I wonder where we might find someone like that…
