bike commuting in NJ
I used to live in Edison and only commuted a few times to work, about 25 miles each way, mainly because of my fear of car congestion in this area. Recently moved closer to work, now only 15 miles away in Somerset county, but have also only commuted to worked a few times. I still find the roads too windy and narrow especially around rush hour. My office and home is near I78, but I rarely see bike commuters. Are there many of you in this area commuting a few times a month to work? If so, what are your strategies to avoid the traffic and ensuring safety? I would like to commute more next year, as the loss of daylight is a deterrent for me to consider it till the spring.
