I took the long way to work this morning and it was worth every minute of the two hours I spent in the saddle. I get to ride almost 26 miles and don't hit a traffic light until I arrive at work. Rutter Parkway and the Centennial Trail and quiet and soothing, in spite of the climbing involved, during the wee hours of the morning.
Obligatory route map.
View of the Spokane River.
What's not to like about riding to work with this beside you?
