If you were a fifty+ newbie rider with a compact double crank, would one of those routes lynnef described be preferable from either an altitude or traffic perspective? From motorcycling days I seem to recall Humphrey/Hewitt as twisty and narrow.
I've been riding back and forth from my house near Tek to the Sylvan interchange to build up a little strength and average speed. Now that I can get that far merely winded rather than gasping
I'm ready to try to extend my range (with the ultimate goal of making pretty much the very commute this topic discusses).
Hope this doesn't count as a thread hijack. Since it's the topic route I thought it might be better to hitch a ride rather than start an essentially duplicate topic.
