This, again, is part of one of my new areas to cycle. It's just down the road from 228 and 227 [link]
Yesterday I was able to find some new roads far to the north of this area which allowed me to add some more time to my ride. I've got enough roads for three hours, now, but my camelbak (70 oz) is drained at 2 1/2 hours. This is making the last 30 minutes a hell! Yesterday's ride was three hours and even though the temperature was only about 94F...the road temp at face level was 107F.
Anyway, I love this ride and these roads. I feel completely lost...you can feel the desolation in this photograph. The only sounds are the whispering crops and the birds. Quite nice!
