I have a short commute – 5 km. I ride quiet bikeways and paths almost the whole way on traffic-calmed streets. There are a number of major intersections to cross but today, I did not stop at a single red light. Not one. This have never happened before and it cut my commute time in half.
I’ve had that happen twice. No stop lights and I could safely blow every stoplight… Nine stops in all in sixteen miles. Good stuff man.
Great! My commute is around 5km each way too. So good to just fly along without the start/stop.
It is 5 km to the office but I usually do 40-50 km on the way back. Every ride is an opportunity for a workout no matter which bike I’m on.
