Re: My commute

These are a couple of the roads I ride back and forth to work every day:


I took the really long way home last night to enjoy some really fine twisties, and snapped this pic at a favorite little coffee shop:

Re: My commute

In all seriousness, that's the route I ride to work every day. There is a freeway alternate but I'd rather ride the additional 10 miles, and have the level of traffic you see above.

Re: My commute

Ewww! *Latrobe Road. *I crashed there. *My only crash and it was because of large lumps in the road in the middle of turns with no steering dampers. *I ride slowly if I am forced to go on that road now and my steering damper is cranked down.

I hate that road. It hurt my baby.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

I think I know the corner you're talking about, Shrub. You have to be really careful about your line. The 'easy' line will loft you in the air in mid-corner, but if you take a wide line it's fine.

Re: My commute

If there were a road like that to my workplace I would ride to work everyday. In the last year a mall and three huge apartment complexes have opened on my six-mile ride to work.

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: My commute

That reminds me some of the area around Shenandoah, VA...

Very nice road, you are lucky to have such a commute!

Re: My commute

Awesome!

My commute is now 1.5 miles on my bicycle through urban sprawl. It is so nice to not commute anymore, 2 hours a day of my life back!
