Maybe you folks have some ideas. I live in an urban environment in a fantastic city for cycling (at least weather-wise). I can start riding right out my front door and often do. From there I have two terrific destinations which aren't that far away (most of my during-the-week rides are 10-15 miles) -- Balboa Park and Kensington, if you're familiar with San Diego.
Of course, i can also fairly quickly bring the bike to some other areas using my car.
But here's the rub. I've done all the rides in my neck of the woods and the necks nearby many times now. Sure, they're great destinations, but it feels like I've explored almost every nook and cranny. Yes, each ride is unique because it's a different day, different wind, different temperature, different time, and so on, but I think you know what i mean -- when I start thinking about where I'll ride today, I have the same reaction I have when i start thinking about what to have for dinner today -- oh no, not that again! Isn't there something different????
So, who's got some tips I can use to push through the "boredom" barrier?
