My commute

I tend to ramble on a bit about my commute. But a picture is worth a thousand words. And Rod Stewart said every picture tells a story. So, here is my commute in pictures. All taken from the saddle, most of them while rolling.

How does the traffic treat you on the 13 hill? That looks a little dicey. I assume it's a bit of a balance between that and the numerous bike paths.

good feature. Given that I have no original ideas of my own, I might have steal yours. peace

This post brought back memories of my commute from IGH to Golden Valley a few years back. I came to have great appreciation for that very Port-O-Biff as it was around 10 miles into my commute and it was time to return my morning coffee.
