The roads that time forgot. You know the
ones. They run from places like Longago Junction to a place like
Nocovelo, a small, fading town in Nobody’s Around Valley tucked
away in a backwater corner of Mendontcomeno County. These
historical curiosities are often deadenders with only gravel
providing an alternate escape. But this helps keep traffic down
and Remoteness up. Twistiness comes alive when these forgotten
roads climb up and down over ridges and track waterway valleys –
which can make for varied and stimulating hill and vale
Scenery. Trouble is, the attractive qualities of such ancient
byways are often tempered by asphalt that feels like it hasn’t
been updated since the 50s – and often hasn't been. Not so here.
For some reason – probably relating to Pavement-barrel
politics – the road’s surface is rarely less than adequate and is
often superior. And with the asphalt being this good, you don't
mind some challenging Engineering; in fact, you often prefer it.
If you're lucky, you'll find a few highways like this in your
time, classics that suit a timeless mount – a Crocker say or
perhaps a Brough Superior. But even a modern-era Ducati won't
beat you up too badly on this one. Because, while it may be one
of those roads that time forgot, CalTrans certainly hasn't.
