Certainly, some of the most stunning scenery and roads in the world can be found in the US and Europe. With winding loops, soaring mountains and elating sights, the US really is one of the greatest countries in the world for scenery. We've got ferocious roads that elate, jaw-dropping views, and intensely memorable roads.
In this article, we're going to check out some roads we wish we could ride down right now. Make sure to share these with your friends! These images come from Unsplashed, photographed by those who were in awe of their travels and had to share their photos online. Check them out.
With a deep hairpin like this, you're sure to feel a rush of adrenaline surge through you. With smooth tarmac that'll ensure your motorcycle glides like a breeze and surrounding forests, this road will be one of the greatest journeys you'll ever take on your motorcycle.
Just looking at this hairpin makes me shudder! However, it's an excited type of shuddering, that's for sure. I can just imagine swerving around it right now, with the surrounding forests around me and a cool breeze blowing. What a wonderful image that is!
2. Dusty Horizon
Who couldn't ask for a more scenic view than this? Just let your eye roll towards the blue mountains on the horizon, and you'll find yourself become serenely calm while mesmerized at the same time.
The orange dust of the ground and the cyan sky are an idyllic contrast, and they really soothe the eye. If you look to the blue mountains far away, you'll see how many shades there are. From navy to coral blues to azures, every type of blue on the spectrum is visible. I find this such a stunning sight, and no doubt, if you ride down this road, you'll find yourself in awe of the blue mountains far away.
Of course, it's barely possible to comment on the road! It's straight as a needle, and it extends as far as the eye can see. To me, I see it as a perfect and safe road for riding at higher speeds, since it's a little more empty than other roads, but I'd still make sure to be careful, of course.
3. Autumnal Passage
Just soak in the beauty and vibrancy of this image. Could you imagine yourself riding your motorcycle slowly down this gravel passage, and absorbing every sight and sound? As I look at this image, I see crisp leaves and Autumnal changes, as well as the sounds of chirping birds at the setting sun. It's a stunning road, and even though it's more a passage than a road, it does echo such a sentimental feeling
There's also a certain nostalgic air to this passage; one could almost imagine children running down the passage or going to collect blackberries. All these images run through my mind when I see this passage. It echoes such a warm, cozy feeling within me. This is certainly a road I'd love to glide down with my motorcycle one day, because of its Autumnal atmosphere.
4. Canopy and Cascades
This image should be a masterpiece framed in a photography museum! Of course, as a biker, I would just adore the thought of riding down a road, only to encounter this beautiful sight. It takes my breath away even to look at it, and I haven’t even ever seen it in person before!
The cascade of leaves is simply stunning and that cascade seems to engulf every vehicle that passes it. There's such a mystical atmosphere to this road for sure, almost as if it is the doorway to a mythical underground world. It could be a scene from The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings.
The trees' branches are articulately cut also, and they certainly weave in together to create a stunningly beautiful sight.
Overall, I would be enthralled by this sight for sure.
Wow, just take a look at the gorgeousness of the scenery surrounding this road! With soaring skies and azure radiance, this road boasts magnificent scenery. While we couldn't pinpoint the exact location of this road, we are aware that many Swiss roads have this look, because of their surrounding pine forests and ascending mountain. From grassy, rolling hills to the open expanse of the skies, Swiss roads certainly have a beautiful flair about them.
The roads are also perfect for bikers and cyclists, because they have quieter roads leading and swirling through the countryside also. While many Swiss roads and motorways are packed, if you look enough, you'll find quieter country roads that'll bring you to the heart of the countryside.
6. Winter Wonderland
Just check out this road! It seems to move into fog and clouds along the horizon. This evokes such a wintery atmosphere and it's certainly a road I'd love to drive down one day. With its eerily magical qualities, this could be a scene out of that Winter movie (you know which one I'm talking about . . . Frozen!).
I think the snowy landscapes really enforce that wintery feeling and even though it looks cold by this road, I would sure love to ride down it some day! I also adore how the road tails off at the end and turns a corner, so you're never certain where you're headed, but isn't there something quite beautiful about that? Just like life, you're on the road for surprises and tribulation, trials of sorrow and doubt, but overall, these moments make up part of the surprise of life.
Final Thoughts: Head Into Unknown Territory
By seeking for beauty, we often ignore the landscapes around us. As a biker, I hope you will come to learn that even in the most obscure of roads, beauty can be found.
This collection of stunning photography really showcases the true beauty of the world, and that sometimes, in all our trials and tribulations, oftentimes the greatest beauty is that in the scenery near us. We don't have to venture far to find beauty, for it's all around us. No matter where we live or where we look, there lies an entire world right outside our doorstep.
While few of the locations of these roads were given, I'm sure you'll find roads with scenery similar to that above. Perhaps, the aim of this photography collection was to explore some photos that echo beauty rather than give exact locations.
Make sure to share this with your friends! I'm sure they'll greatly enjoy this article.
