a lot of us ride across parking lots, behind buildings and in alleys as part of our regular routes. any tips for navigating these successfully and efficiently?
to me, really busy suburban parking lots are a nightmare. so many ways to get slammed. I like to ride around the periphery of the lot and then go along parallel to the storefronts to get where I'm going, if it's one of the stores in the strip mall...and in back of the buildings if I'm just trying to cut through to get somewhere in the next block. behind the buildings your only problem is delivery trucks and they are usually parked.
