Check out my new commute home!

So I do the whole caltrain/bike thing, but now I want to start riding all the way home (train+bike in the AM, and 100% bike in the PM)

I work in Mountain View (San Antonio near the bay shore), and home is in San Mateo (24th ave between Alameda and El Camino)

So today I tried the bayshore/bay trail/misc follow the 101 and the shoreline route, and it sucked! Tons of crappy roads, DIRT roads (I'm a roady), I had to cross a rocky dirt field in my bike shoes...

So I decided I wanted to make a new route. I don't mind using a little bit of a longer of a route, since this is for commuting and for fun.

So here's what I came up with. What do you all think?

It is 25 miles, and there is 1071 ft of climbing. I think it is a good every day route.

I will try it on Monday

I have ridden on 95% of the road segments included, but it's been a while for some of the stuff south of Woodside.
