April 10th: Repetitive Routes

bike route

So, for lack of time and for the sake of safety, I usually either bike or run the same 3 mile loop in my vicinity.  When I bike, of course, I end up doing the loop multiple times just to get more mileage in and try to go into different neighborhoods or down different streets to increase the mileage.

Today, I attempted to do just that… I went further down a major artery that intersects near my neighborhood and thought that this would be a good way to increase my mileage and be able to go faster for longer.  WRONG!  I ended up having to wait for cars to pass and 3 intersections and totally miscalculated the amount of traffic at the time I went out.

I’ve got to start planning a ride on my Saturday morning route by the ocean…  Perhaps Easter weekend!!
