In my "Farm and Country" thread, I complained about the lack of twisties in Ontario. I'm going to have to partly take that back, because this picture was taken above an actual "mountain-wannabe" twisty. If you look to the right, there's a steep drop-off. There be a road down there.

Smithville's probably about 30 min past where I was riding. Hmmm - it's looking pretty nice tomorrow - I may just take the camera down there!

As for the Tim's, there weren't any near where I was riding.

This is across the road from "New Mountain Road", overlooking Hamilton / Stoney Creek.

Another twisty

This is "DeWitt Road" - and unfortunately it's only 1-way.

By now it's around 7AM, and it was time to get to work. Since DeWitt's one-way, I had to make for the next road down, which was McNeilly Hill.

Unfortunately, this got in my way:



seems the bridge's in need of maintenance.

Can you say "detour"?
