I live in Ker Place and ride over scenic drive, up Alabama, to the top of Mckeligan Canyon, and then down to Ft Bliss where I work. I do the reverse for the home trip. When necessary I ride directly to Ft Bliss using Mobile street down to Pershing and then into Ft Bliss.
I've been a serious cyclist since 1990 and off and on commuter since, whenever it was feasible. I lived in Korea for 3 years adn biked as often as possible on my 70's Raliegh.
