    Beautiful paths, and so many bike lanes! Great video, those cameras are so much fun.

    It depends on the day. Shortest route (video) is approximately 12 miles. If i'm doing an endurance ride i'll go for 30-40 miles around the lake first. I try to vary the rides everyday.

    I'm surprised people actually know LTJ. I loved him in the 90's and still do.

    You have to commit early or just take it easy and stop at the bottom. Going 40mph and hitting a red at the bottom of the hill is going to be bad news.

    Very cool. I liked the shadow-guy spinning away at 2:35 or so, and how it looked like you continued to ride through the hallways at work.

    Yikes, good eyes. They are great for solo rides, horrible for the person behind you.

    I think the best part is how his work day only lasts from 3:51 to 3:52

    What is there not to like? I can understand if you are unfamiliar with the area as new places can be scary but Bellevue is fairly safe. There are bike lanes everywhere, the regular lanes are wide, and drivers are relatively accepting of cyclists.

    Looks like you started out in Mercer Island and rode downtown Bellevue. Enjoyed the vid, used to ride those streets often.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I try to take different routes as often as I can. I chose that route because I felt it would be more interesting to watch. I like the transition of the warm blinding sun to the cold ice covered trails. I also like being able to see the city at a distance and watch it progressively grow as I get closer.

    From a riding perspective I generally take that route on my rest days as the elevation gain is stretched over a longer distance.

    These two comments in tandem made me think I was going to hear a Less Than Jake song in the video. What does LTJ mean in other peoples' worlds?
