    I'm no pro at this here posting pic's, but I'm going to go for it! I had a great riding experience today on SR 82 travelling north from Hockessin, DE to Birdsboro, PA. approximately 50+ miles, I clocked 80 miles one way from my house. This SR 82 is for the experienced rider it has ninety degree turns, narrow roads, no shoulders, very tight twisties, and blind turns!! It was extremely difficult to get pic's of some of the better views because it was too dangerous to pull over and take pic's so, here are a couple of pic's I was able to get.

    That is definitely the best ride in Delaware and possibly Southeast PA. It used to be a monthly staple ride.

    I just moved to Utah from Newark, DE. Thanks for posting this, makes me miss home.

    I have always wanted to ride the original end of rt 82 , the bridge was washed out 15 +- ? years ago , but maybe you could single track and cross the stream ? :eek1
