Here in Tennessee we are so fortunate to get to ride year round. Some of my favorite pictures are from winter landscapes. The brown tint of the earth, hazy blue skies, and the barrenness of trees are warming to my heart on a chilly day. I’m not saying that winter is my favorite time of the year by any means. I don’t relish being cold or bundled up in a hundred layers. But there is beauty in all seasons and winter is no exception. Here are a few of my favorite shots from Knoxville and Chattanooga. Hope you get to stay in the saddle year round. Happy Holidays from Backroad Cycling!
