hey guys! just joined up here and wanted to say Hi It's nice to find likeminded others. I was wondering if any of you begin your ride in a very rural area then end up deep in the city. That's what my commute does. Anyway...lately i find myself feeling safer inside the city than far off on country roads and this is weird because i grew up in this area but for some reason i find i become more comfortable once i get closer to a populated area. No big jump in crime here- nothing i can really pinpoint just suddenly i'm no longer comfortable on those back roads. I can't fix my commute- it has to be this way. All roads to town are rural. I just wondered if any of you ever had similar problems with your routes and what you did to solve them.
