I’ve been riding part of my projected commute, in order to see the danger zones, and also just get fit enough to do the whole thing. There are some sketchy intersections on Sonoma Mountain Parkway, where whole lines of cars are turning right.
I’m just as slow on my bigger fixed gear as my normal one, but I need to make up 10 seconds between each light in order to not get caught by the red. That’s a goal. 10% faster. I’d like to be 10% lighter, too. I think those are attainable goals, maybe by July.
I’ll keep you posted.
