The Lincoln Highway is also know as Route 30.....its a coast to coast road......I hope to ride it in its entirety(not all at once. ) but at least have traversed it.......but anyhow.....I got out for a nice 80 mile trip this afternoon....one highlight for me, is stopping at the Flight 93 memorial, it's real close to me. For starters is the 3.5 twisty road they just put in to get you out to the actual memorial...sweet new~ish asphalt...and the fact that if ya go during the week, on the off season, ie not summer, or close to 9/11, you have the road all to yourself

then from there I headed west. I was just gonna ride out to where the old Ship Hotel used to be and turn around, but when I saw the warning sharp curve sign, decided F-it, I'm taking the long loop...so a quick pic there and off I go...down, down, down...very nice section.....at the bottom cut arcoss the bottom of the ridge to another place where the road makes its way back up and over the mt. So all in all a nice afternoon....

Great way to spend your day. Looks like a great area and thanks for sharing the pics.

Love that sign for dangerous curves! Would really like to see video of that ride if you get the chance.
