I was fortunate to have yesterday off of work due to the Governments honor of our veterans. I used the day to get a few things done for wedding planning, but since it was a gorgeous November day, I also went for a bike ride. I am going to be doing a rotation for about 6 weeks at a different location for work, so I thought I would try several routes that I could use to bike to work. I mapped them out on the computer and it looked like there were 2 options and they both were about the same distance. One route crossed over the Potomac to the north and the other to the south.
One thing that I forgot to bring with me was my government ID, so I couldn't follow the exact route that I was going to take north. When I made it back home, I decided that the north route was probably going to be the best way for me to ride. They both have advantages, and I may try them both, but I think the north one wins for best commuter route.
