I Love the Smell of Asphalt in the Morning

It smells like...bicycle commuting. Get up. Go ride.


  1. One of the roads I ride often is fresh, new pavement that's part of the package when the turbines go up all over the countryside. Love riding that road with all its smoothness. It's fast, fast, fast.

  2. Actually, IMO, asphalt doesn't even smell good when there is no other traffic around. It smells like - asphalt!

    I prefer concrete...

  3. jk those turbines make an eery whooshing sound, don't they? I drove a car around some in IL, but not a bicycle, and wonder what the experience is like.

    Steve, I theorize that they are using some low-VOC asphalt or something, it didn't smell too strong.
