I'm thinking of commuting 10 miles to school (20 mile round trip) however there is a stretch of the commute I don't exactly feel thrilled to ride through on a daily basis. For those of you that go through rougher areas of town, is it ever an issue? Also the stretch is far from flat some areas would make me feel even more vulnerable that on a straight flat ride.
For those of you that live in San Diego, the commute would essentially consist of:
Woodman to Imperial Ave (Encanto area) to Massachusetts to University and finally up College Ave
What are your thoughts?
