rural road or highway…what’s your preference?

The routes in our area have their pros and cons. Which of these routes would appeal to you more?

1. Winding rural country road, rough patched pavement, narrow sandy shoulder, occasional traffic, big hills and great water views.Image

2. Wide shoulder highway, smooth pavement with some debris, heavy fast moving traffic, fewer hills.Image

We usually opt for the rural ride!

I’ve just recently learned that my previous blogging platform (posterous) is shutting down so I’ve migrated all of my content here! Hope you enjoy GIVE HER THE GEARS – Route maps and Thoughts from a Saint John Cycling Enthusiast.

As luck would have it…

Mother nature was on our side today. Got out for our second annual St Patrick’s Day ride. Covered 10.4 km. My husband bought a new Garmin Edge 200 GPS so we had fun looking at our stats when we got home. It tracks everything and gives a very cool map of route and elevation. Neat!

We’ve plugged our 2012 goal in to Garmin as well… 2000 km! We’re 0.5% there already!
