Route 44 Jersey Shore
Along Route 44 approaching Jersey Shore from the east, there is a very steep mountain. My daughter and I were out for a drive to Cherry Springs one beautiful, autumn, Saturday. That particular part of the road is very steep and very curvy. As we went around one right hand curve we both saw a man on a bicycle approaching the next curve in the road. He went around the bend and out of our sight. When we got to the point in the road a few seconds later he was nowhere to be seen. We went a little further expecting to catch up to him. My daughter asked "if I had seen him and where could he have gone".
This mountain is so steep that anyone on a bicycle couldn't pedal fast enough to out run a car. Curious, we went to the lookout at the top of the summit and turned around. We couldn't find anything. At the spot where he would have disappeared the drop is too great for him to have gone off the road to the left and too straight for him to go up the mountain to the right.
We have no explanation for what we saw, nor have we heard any other accounts for similar sightings there. If anyone has any insight on this I would appreciate knowing.
