Say what you will about the thrill of a wild downhill, or the sizzle of a hot pace line, or the panoramic view from the top of a high summit—all parts of a great ride. But there are other, quieter pleasures to be had on a bike. In between those bigger and faster rides, one of my favorite forms of cycling enjoyment is the neighborhood crawl: a slow cruise around a ?ne old residential district, checking out the stately homes.
