    You should make pic 4 again, but this time with your bike in it. Beautiful scenery.

    Ok, we all officially have commute envy now. Five photos, and we can see half a car, total.

    Wow! Nice.
    When I ride, the troubles just roll off my back.

    Great photo's. Great ride ... Can't see the bike all that well. A road bike, & you ride on skinny tires?.. And the commute is entirely urban.

    Awesome pictures.

    Reminds me of the endless numbers of people who live in New York City and refuse to NEVER live anywhere else. As if New York City is the end of the earth and paradise.


    These days to have a commute that doesn't involve thousands of cars, constant blaring of horns and the worry of being knocked off your bike then robbed is worth millions.

    However, to commute in an area that relates to the cartoon "Southpark" is worth... (cue Doctor Evil).... Billions....

    The Bearded Fred: Only known cyclist left in the world to be 100% natural and completely free from performance enhancing drugs. Also known for self reliance, amazing talent for satisfying the women and great guitar riffs. Honestly, a full racing kit is absolutely the most ridiculous looking stuff you can wear short of a clown suit."

    That's "nothing interesting"? Looks pretty good to me! Especially the pathways that look like they were designed for safe and efficient transit without burning nonrenewable energy - we don't have anything like that where I live.

    I'm also incredibly jealous. I hope to be out in some place like that myself someday.

    By saying non interesting I was talking about my commute personally. I watch all these different videos of close calls and crazy riders. I don't have that going on. The scenery is spectacular and I wouldn't trade it!

    Does that South Park bike path go by Big Gay Als' place?
    Just wondering if he keeps a fresh baked pie in the window?
