Today I went on a fun little ride that included Webb Cove and Patton Mountain roads, the closest to town gravel roads that I know of. Highlights: 1. Catching all the green lights all the way to Beaverdam. I didn't have to stop once until I chose to, to take a photo at the end of the pavement on Webb Cove.
2. The descent of Patton Mountain. I was really pushing it into the corners like I was deep in the forest without worry about cars around the blind turns. Luckily I was the only vehicle on the road. 3. Catching every single light back to West Asheville. That's not really a highlight except it made me stop, catch my breath, and observe the every day beautiful things that I would have otherwise missed. Oh, it was a perfect day to be on the bike. Temps in the low to mid 60's (but it felt much warmer) and mostly cloudy.
