Looked back after the ascent and the sun seemed to shine its blessings on this nice section...

Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.

Going from left to right in that picture at the bottom looks like a fun decreasing radius turn with pretty good visibility

Yeah, I heard Illinois has some horrible riding roads, too flat.

Let me know if you want details.

Great shot of Lookout Mountain, the lower set of switchbacks.The photo doesn't do it justice in showing how steep the road really is. Did you see a vintage, black Suzuki, with the rider leaning waaaay off the bike going up and down the mountain? Yesterday I was going up by the top set of switchbacks, and a black Hayabusa pulled out behind me. He never did catch up with me.

Hey thanks everyone. It is a road a sporting ride can have fun on.

No Worries... As you know, what the image doesn't capture is there's much more of the same on this road.
