    What great fun seeing your commute! Wonderful pics and I'm glad you shared 'em. You sure have some wide bike lanes in your state!

    I took the tour too, very nice commute. Sign me up for your next tour.

    Those bike lanes are much like ours here in Ohio.

    Very nice, Sir.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Excellent. Very nice rollers on your commute!

    Which is "easier"? Going or comin'? Probably depends on the wind???

    Very nice. At least the traffic looks lighter than it would be for me if I tried to commute. And, they told me if I rode my bike to work, I couldn't bring it inside, it would have to stay in the parking lot......... SHEESH.

    It's a shame they make it so hard on us cyclists in this country. But I shouldn't get started on that. Nice photos!

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    A whopping 2.5 miles. That's the kind of commute you get when you have the job before the apartment.

    I'm lucky in that I can choose when I arrive at work. Traffic is much heavier at rush hours.

    Yes it is. I'm very lucky. Bicycle parking at my job looks like this.



    And they are both mine. Though I allow anyone who needs to blow off steam to take the Stiletto for a spin.

    Oddly, my work is only about 20 feet lower than my dwelling, so despite all the hills, it's a dead heat. The 40 mile an hour hill is the steepest and in deference to the knees, I usually walk up going home unless there is zero traffic and I can zig zag up the hill.
