I have a love/hate with the superslab. While they're great for putting down some miles in smallish amounts of time, they're god awful boring and monotonous, even in otherwise pretty areas. Western Maryland is no exception of course. I rode out to Morgantown, WV on I-68 expediency, but my girlfriend has class on Mondays and I don't, so I had the whole day to myself to get back to Baltimore. By the big roads, its only about 215 miles and +/-4 hours. A little prodding of Mapsource gave me a nice little way to get back that only took about 3x as long. Better get riding! Left Morgantown on WV 7 and pretty quickly found myself on fairly rocky dirt country roads about 15 minutes and a few turns out of town. Coming down a long hill that had been riding along a fairly high cliff, the road takes a left turn and crosses the Cheat River for pleasant surprise #1 of the day: Where I came from The bridge is just one option of course. I could always go straight: or turn right but neither of those are headed in the right direction. Or are on the map. Or look like they've been traveled much recently. Or ever. That's ok. The bridge way looks pretty too. :eek1 Looking back after crossing, the river already obscured by the forest... Onward and upward! And then, a road sign.
