I had a meeting in Baltimore today, and I figured, “Why not?”  I decided to bike in and commute to the meeting.  I chose a new route, using www.bikeroutetoaster.com.  It actually worked pretty well.  I do need to tweek my Garmin course settings.  The course typically told me to turn after I was in the intersection.  I want more warning than that.

The rides were relatively uneventful.  Only 1 driver shouted, “Get off the road!”  I managed to miss most of the potholes.  Only one vehicle made a right hand turn in front of me, missing me by about 2 feet.  It is all part of riding on the road.  That’s why the cyclist has to be hyper vigilant.  Once I got back on the trail, I breathed a sigh of relief.

The pace was slow, but then I wasn’t trying to win any speed races.  Negotiating city traffic has me slowing down frequently.  I learned some route nuances watching some other cyclists.
