for the past 3 years, I haven't had a commute except for a 75ft walk out to the barn where my office is, I used to commute about 17miles each way to my office, but 90% back roads half of which was gravel, and the mile and a half of state highway I was going in the opposite direction of 90% of the traffic

but, I do use my bike as a company vehicle to run errands, research,courrier and visit jobsites in rural northern new england, I stick to town roads as much as possible, most of the time I'm on the road mid day mid week, rarely see another vehicle, occasional delivery truck, or tradsman going to a job just like me, I know the roads well, know what to expect, where etc so rarely do I have a surprise, common to have a flock of wild turkeys wander into the road, I usually know where to expect it, same with deer, etc, I know which neighbors are prone to pulling out of their driveway without looking, I know where blind driveways are, corners that are prone to loose gravel and most importantly, I know the routes with the fewest driveways & lowest traffic

sounds boring doesn't it ?

typical ride except that its a Saturday morning when traffic is heaviest
