i found a new route to work from my house today. it's only 7 miles and i noticed some bike paths along the road with the bike symbol on it but it doesn't go all the way, i'd say prolly only half or less has a dedicated bike lane and the rest is just normal road where cars go 30 - 40 mph. It's mostly flat the whole way with very slight ups and downs. I think i'll try to bike it some day but i'd start at like 6:30 am and it's still dark then. I'm thinking it should only take about 30 min or so right? yesterday I want riding with some friends on this park that has a lot of diff tracks where people bike, walk and jog and I was able to go 25MPH pretty easily and I was on the biggest cog in the front and the 3rd smallest one in the rear. I didn't even try to go faster. i donno if my legs are getting stronger already or if it was the changes I made cause I have a diff angle on my stem and I made my seat a little higher, it feels a lot better now that way but it looks so high when i look at it from the side and when I stop it's not very easy to put my feet down so what I do is just hope in front and stand over the top tube.
