A mystery

...a mystery road, that is!

I've lived in this area long enough that when my bicycle wheels roll down a road I am usually in very familiar territory. The path looks different when I'm riding opposite my usual direction but it still exudes an "I've been here before" feeling.

My last two rides? I wandered down roads that I don't remember at all. It seems hard to believe that there are roads I've never ridden before, but I managed to find a few. It's funny - I don't find it disconcerting at all to ride on unfamiliar roads when I'm touring away from home, but when I'm home? I expect to know where I am. I have to admit that the new-to-me roads were beautiful though.

My new riding goal? To seek out more mystery roads!
