Per, Did you go up or down this road? And, how fast did your drive it? It reminds me of an amusement ride but you have clearly captured its beauty and complexity. Best regards. -Art

Great photo, reminds me of parts of Lakeland or Scotland when I was a Biker in the 70's

There's a long long trail awinding. ;-)

Quite extraordinary! I hope the brakes were working OK. Are there many passing points on this route? I have to say it looks excitingly dangerous!

Nice road PerO. Maybe I'll get there on the bike one day. I use a tag "Great Roads" for places like this.

If you drive down here, Art, then you have drive up again as well, that is if you don't have a pre-booked ticket on the ferry arriving here once a day during the summer.

In this case, I wasnt driving neither down nor up, because it was a bit late in the day, and sunset was approaching. I've however, driven this road several times before, and it is a good and safe way to drive.

It is also a good trial of strength for bicyclists like you. ;-))

I know that every summer and autumn there are companies that organize cycling here as a trial of strength for their employees.

Thanks again for your visit and nice comment. :-)

Best wishes,

I'd love to bring you here on a nice summer day, Amelia, although I can't guarantee for any nightingale song or a white moonshine. ;-))

In fact, the first time I drove down here, when the road was new and I was a young and inexperienced driver, the brakes worked very well all the way until I came down to the valley floor. Then I was almost about to run into a wall when I was going to park the car, probably because of a boiling brake fluid. :-o

But just you relax, I'm more experienced now. :-))

Thanks for your comment and the nice song. :-)

Very many bikers do just that skida.

I'm sure that they have a great experience.

You will be very welcome too. :-)

Thanks for visit and a nice comment.

Yes PPerO I had several bikes when I was fully legged and fully sighted, enjoyed each one in different ways.

My legal biking beginning was a scooter, Lambretta LI 150 we went on short trips and long trips, in rain and sun - mostly rain!

Replaced with a SX 200, I went a lot further on that, camping and hiking in Lakes and Scotland, visiting relatives and friends, usually getting wet also!

Motorcycles next, a Honda 350 twin CB350, very good runner and good looking too!toured Yorkshire and Lancashire, Lakes most weekends, some race watching at local clubs and work all the time!, replaced with Suzuki 380 cc RAM AIR fast on level ground but slower on hills(2 stroke) that bike was the one I crashed on (cars fault) in July 2nd 1976, have not ridden bike since, but had several cars up to 1997 when eyesight got too bad to drive.

Still looking for a couple of eyes and a good bike!!

You are reminiscing Mike, and that is good I hope. :-)

I was never a motorcyclist myself, except for one time when I borrowed a 50cc to pick up a girlfriend who was babysitting in a place that was a bit too far to walk to. :-))

And yes, I remember it was a two-stroke, and I was very proud when I managed to keep the speed uphill with a two person load. :-))

Those were fine days, my friend. We thought they never end. :-))
