It took me a very short while to figure out that life was way better off the interstate. I exchanged some time and distance to have a great commute each day.
This map gives you the gist of it, but not door to door by a few miles on each end.
What is your daily ride like?
The blue is what I typically take, the red lines show possible detours that are usually a little more traffic heavy, but can be a few minutes shorter. The scenery is beautiful also.
there are a few small side roads that can be different and if I am in a hurry its slabbing it on 422 but the gist of this is when I take some extra time my commute can take me through valley forge park which is at its best at 6-7 in the morning while the sun is just coming up and before it gets filled with visitors. I am always in a better mood at work when I take that route. its about 50 miles on both routes
Pretty good for central Indiana... My commute goes from 15.2 in the cage to 16 on the bike but increases the amount of time of travel by 15 minutes... 15 minutes of bliss...
In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "
