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:

I'm jealous! That looks terrific. You're daily commute? You gotta be kidding!

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.

Nice, mines a friggin 10 lane freeway with a million people on it trying to run me over. Oh wait a minut, its actualy closed down to 2 lanes because the (#^%R&#@^ Cal Trans is always working during rush hour!?!?!?!

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.

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.

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.

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

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