Next, keeping with the church theme, you don't see flames too often on the church sign!
Go east and south.

Weather was perfect, temp wise and I just had a ball ripping up those roads. If yinz ever get down that way, take the time to do 25 (or more) miles on 32. Its not twisty, but rather a beautiful, smooth 4 lane divided highway thats mostly unused except by locals. There were times when I saw absolutely no one in front of or behind me. The road itself reminds me of some roads out west...big sweepers and some elevation changes. Its the kind of road that begs you to ride it at much higher than the posted limit of 60 mph. Due to the fact of that area being deer country (the half dozen carcasses I saw attesting to that fact) I kept a reasonable 75 for most of the 50 miles (25 down and 25 back up) I was on it.

Oh, and that Lucas Rd....holy cow batman, that was easily the steepest paved road I've ever ridden...talk about being back in the boonies...that may not have been the most remote place I've ever ridden, but it sure felt like it. Here's the building at the turn onto Lucas Rd:


That's just a mile or two from my house.

Lucas Rd is a steep one. There is a nice scenic view from the top of the ridge.
Probably better in the months when the leaves are down.

State Route 348 is nearby. If you're down that way you owe it to yourself to ride the section of 348 between SR73 and Sr 125. Whoever built that road must have been a motorcycle rider.
