    Default Back roads in the Izu peninsula

    Went for a long, random ride today. Really nice weather, found some amazing roads and great scenery. Made it to Shimoda and back. I'm sure others here have seen these places before, but it was new to me. As someone said in another thread, stay away from the eastern side, and stick to the west.

    Some of those narrow forested mountain roads are pretty sketchy though, with leaves, sticks, sand, rocks, wet patches and even a few oncoming trucks. Had one brown undies moment where the front tyre almost washed out sideways when I went over something I didn't see in a bend.

    I'm no photographer, and these were all taken on a smartphone, but hopefully you get the idea anyway.
