    Show us a map of your commute

    Borrowing a great idea from the C&V forum...... Show us a map of your commute.

    Here's mine. 11 miles one way from Fort Hunt, VA to Arlington, VA.

    what's the point?
    In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

    That must be a beautiful ride. Very scenic. Mine is just full of 4-5 lane 35-45mph roads.

    I agree with cyclist5 look at all the greenery on that map. Mine has NO greenery! LOL. I was going to put my map up until I realized isn't this telling people where you live?

    You could always trim the first (and last) 1/2 mile or so to obfuscate your home and work addresses.

    A mere 1.25 miles, almost no traffic, but I do see bears fairly often...that keeps you on your toes.

    I envy some of you. My commute is 7-8 miles all urban, dirty, stinky, horrible pavement, lots of traffic. I see dead squirrels often...

    I wanted to add that until I started commuting I had no idea that bunnies lived near the railroad tracks. I can see their point. Behind 8 ft fences and plenty of grass and hiding places. One day someone left a basket full of carrots for them.

    Or you could entirely make up a route, based on a location you would like to commute from

    Taken my ride off. Lets just say its boring with no tree except near the RR where I get to see bunnies every morning. They are so cute. Cotton tails. I do get to see the sun rise though and its breath taking.

    Here's mine, less than 4 miles and totally flat. Sometimes I head east for a loop through a couple of parks and push up the hills.
