Show me pictures of you urban, rural, or country side bike route!
Well as some of you know I live in Appalachia and my commute is probably a lot
different looking then others.
It's very scenic, hilly, but unfortunately it's also along side a busy highway.
14.5 One way Commute. 29 mile Round Trip.
Pros: Scenic, Mostly Peaceful (no Car horns constantly blaring), See random Squirrels, Rabbits, and other things along the way, able to shower and get ready at work. Three-Four Choices of stop along the way if I want to get something to drink in case I don't bring something with me.
Cons: Very hilly, Must drive on a busy highway shoulder largest part of the way with coal trucks and 18 wheelers that go about 60 mph, Cycling is virtually no existent around here. This translates to no LBS, poor motorist education aka they are NEVER expecting a bike, like literally with no exaggeration I'm the only person to commute by bike this far out in my entire county. No bike lanes.
Bicycles here are something children get on Christmas Day from Santa and they come from Walmart. In the city proper its slightly different but slightly.
Anyway here are some pictures from the two commute routes I have.
Not part of the commute but about 2 miles from the house:
