Thanks for the route tip! I have considered going on surface streets opposed to the springwater to you know...spice up my commute to/from work :P
But really, between 39th and 52nd is awful on Woodstock. A question though, is there a huge hill on the alternative route? Dont laugh at me, but that hill on Woodstock approaching 39th is my worst enemy! I have never had to walk up a hill except that one! Grrr!
