Buying a road bike (cycling) this week and want to ride outside of Ames. Which roads are best and enjoyable? Any biking enthusiasts out there?
I'd be very careful out there on the roads. I believe you have the right to be there, but there are just too many people driving fast and/or not paying attention. Accidents happen, but it would suck to be on a bike or motorcycle for the matter when one does occur. I ride about 250 miles 4-5 days a week, but only 2 days are on the roads when I'm in a group of 8-16 riders. I'd check around (like you are) at Bikeworld and BikeIowa.org for groups that ride out of the Ames area.
