This is yet another companion thread to "Can vehicular cyclists choose a more mellow route" in the VC sub forum.
Iím more interested in seeing routes that are not direct but are preferred for transportation purposes. If you could highlight a reason or two why you are going out of your way and approximately how much time you are losing by taking a longer route.
Iíll start with this: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Home-City-Hall
Which I will describe as a route where the down hills are worth the up hills. I actually gain time on this route because of the down hills and I avoid the traffic nightmare around Druid Hill Park.
