Just wondering how and where everyone rides.
I try to get on the bike each evening for 45 minutes to an hour and ride at a leisurely pace for 8-10 miles. I found a nice spot in the neighborhood that is relatively free of traffic, with beautiful homes on tree lined streets and with nice smooth blacktop...four or five loops around with the wind whistling through my helmet and the sound of the tires humming and I'm satisfied.
Most people, at least those that frequent this forum, seem to ride much longer routes than I do and I'm just curious about your routine. If you decide to ride 30 miles do you head out for 15 miles and then back or do you pick a 2 mile loop and do 15 reps? I guess part of it depends on whether you live in an urban or rural area and the type of traffic you have to put up with.
Even though my personal routine is repetitious, I enjoy the serenity of a quiet neighborhood and a smooth road.
Anyway, like I said...just curious.
