On the sidewalk area theres a bunch of little shops, so I had to weave around people and their dogs tied to trees some of which don't like bikes. I felt like "Paper Boy".. that old school video game lol.

Anyway, screw this. I'm not going to ride to work unless I can find a safer route. Not worth it to me. Cool story bro.
I forgot about that game - I used to play it as a kid. Have you thought of taking the "long way"? It might take an extra 5 miles, but at least you go a way you feel comfortable.
