Commutes 10 Miles Oneway for 3 years and months
Five Days a week, I use my bike to travel to and from work Year Round

Hectic is one word to describe my route!! I commute everyday from my house (near Harrisburg, NC) to UNC-Charlotte. Iam a student here and Iam in my Senior year, planning on being a police officer. My route has gotten worse over the past 3 years, with more traffic because of Suburban sprawl. More neighborhoods keep going up, which brings with it MORE CARS!!! The roads I ride to work are busy, especially Reedy Creek Rd. (A VERY NARROW TWO LANE COUNTRY ROAD NOT MEANT TO HoLD RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC--and NO BIKE LANES/shoulders!). I do cut through a few neighborhoods, which helps, but Charlotte is a HECTIC place to ride. But nevertheless, I am determined to keep on commuting, despite the crazy people! I LOVE commuting, I feel so good when I arrive to school, I don't have to pay the parking fee to park ($180 a year!!) and it helps the environment. I just don't understand why more people can't see this?? Anyway, I think this site is great, keep up the good work! Ride Safe everyone!! Brian Lambe, Charlotte, NC
