Rural Bicycling

Started at the eastern end and worked my way west, then returned. A 14-mile round trip. Very hilly; about 1200 feet of elevation at the eastern end and 743 feet at the western end.

In the upper left corner you can just see one of the many bends of the Shenandoah River.

At about the mid-point of the trip there is a very sharp hairpin turn. It's a lot of fun on a bike because it's sharply downhill on the way out; not so much fun to climb it on the way back.

I'm thinkin' about puttin' a still in my back yard. But how to keep the revenooers away? Any suggestions?

NJT: you're right, it is Bentonville.

No renter in the house right now, so if you come out to visit you have a place to stay, I left just some essential furniture in it to make it look nice for showing.

BTW - I think the comment above will take you to Japanese porn. I get that stuff all the time and just delete it.

I got tired just looking at the map.
