Yesterday morning I took the Children of the Sun Trail to work. Well, part of the way. You need a really early start to get to the bridge that crosses Parksmith before the construction workers are working on it. So I detoured onto Market until I hit Freya, which wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
The two roundabouts--one for southbound traffic coming off the NSC and the other for northbound NSC traffic--on Freya are pretty neat but there are some drivers who think they can squeeze by a bicycle in those narrow approaches so be sure to take the lane.
I did find that morning traffic on Freya between Francis and Wellesley combined with the road conditions makes for a sucky ride.
