Tough one. I hate narrow lane climbs with no shoulders. That would be dicey. I would be inclined to go a couple extra miles in the heavy traffic but presumably wider roads for sharing side by side. Then on the way home, take the shorter route with the downhill on the narrow lanes. Or are the narrow lanes have an uphill section in both directions? No good answer. My experience is that the more I ride a section of road, my perception of it changes. After about 9 years of commuting I've branched out to roads I would have never considerd in my first year.
