This is a good route to ride on a Sunday, when there is not much traffic.   Burlington has miles of empty textile factories; they have been here since the mid nineteenth century.  Most closed down in just the past ten years.  There are a few left operating still.   On NC87 from Graham to Burlington, there is a great stretch of modernist buildings in just a one / two mile stretch, including two of the same dry cleaning building.  There is so much optimism in these buildings.  Can you imagine that kind of optimism today?
