Lansing is not a very large city, so the car traffic isn't usually bad, and the grid street pattern gives me a lot of route choices. It's flat as an ironing board and the climate is pretty good. You can see one of the rivers in the photo, which have trails along them that are good for getting to a lot of places. My house is in the center of the photo, about 1/3 down from the top. So I'm close to downtown, which is where the transfer station is for most of the bus lines.
