a bit below the belt i think, lol:huh:huh:huh
NO! NO! JimVonBaden was correct. NOTHING at all to ride near Marion, Va. Just a few dead straight roads that senior citizens use to get to the local Piggly Wiggly.
Once they finished stripping away all the coal in WV the state was completely flat. They straightened all the roads. Didn't you get the memo?
No. Not at all. I don't have a 30-30. Oh, wait a minute. You said or, I thought you said and. My driveway is only 100yds or so, but the mile of gravel road getting to it freaks out my Nancy Boy sportbike friends.
unfortunately this is true, 90% of WV was subjected to mountain top removal and valley fills. Sadly this pic was from my ride in the mountains of WV last weekend No reason to come here anymore, its all just reclaimed mine property, straight roads and rolling fields...

WV used to be a wonderful place to ride but it looks more like nebraska now
Uh huh. I spent 4 months in Petersburg last year on a contract job. That's what it looked like alright. Straight and flat.
And that map a few pages back of that hideous road in Oregon... Be warned: 5 of the 6 rain free days this year are already booked with Bicycle tours.
I know the one that isn't but, well... OK, I am open to taking bids but it really isn't that special.
Nothing good in PA either any pictures you've seen to the contrary have been photoshopped and any videos (including my own) have all had unpaved and/or twisty roads CGed in.
Long Island is the destination now, everyone should crowd in there further.
Word has it that the Federales are Permitting a rim-cut strip mine on the TN side of The Dragon. Roadbed will be about 300' wide with a straight 4-lane road with lots of space off to the side for trinket shops and boutiques...
Same with roads in New Hampshire.
Dead flat no curves anywhere. Well, maybe a few once you get off the 10's of 1000's of miles of freeway.
You want curves, best to stay on the Dragon, don't come looking in NE, none of that to see here, move along
Oh... you guys have to come to Delaware... this one has 13 curves:

Didn't you hear the road is closed, gates at both end and they never plan to open them again. Part of some forest plan to close all road in the trees.
Well then come down to Houston...we a A curve, and it's only 300 miles to the next one
no matter what the tires start as - they all end up looking like darksiders
Ain't this the truth! I have new tire in my garage right now waiting to go on. The old on from the side looks brand new as well. From the rear, well:
That is what happens when you ride 36 miles a day to work and back home, and the only two curves are the entrance/exit to work and my subdivision.
Better get your camera and stake out your spot! Before you know it there will be a bike or two riding by every few days!
You must have WV confused with Kansas!
Welcome to Georgia... same shit here. Mile plus long straights with good visibility and no intersection roads or driveways... double yellow. And they have this nice habit of arbitrarily lowering the speed limit too.
We know it is all about raising revenue.
That is why playing cops & robbers is a life long necessity.
