Whats your path each day?

Mine is an enjoyable ride, not to much traffic, some, but not to much.
I get on Beltway South at 45 and head east through Pasadena and then over the big bridge to I-10 then to Sheldon and head down through mexiville.
Pretty much a hassle free ride. I usually am going about 6:30 in the am and on the way back in the 5:30 pm range

YOU?

Nice ride on the bike, I would think. And depending on the weather.

Scoot, you must live right by me....

I start off from I-45 head west on the beltway, hit a load of traffic when I get to West Fuqua cause there is a turn in beltway there and everyone thinks that it is a freaking 5 mph 90 deg turn, then I speed up for a little bit and slam on the brakes again cause there is a new overpass and I don’t wanna hit my head on it called the Fort Bend toll road, then I speed up again and then get slammed again at the 59 South interchange, and there is traffic pretty much all the way till I get past the Westhiemer exit in which time I speed up for half a second and exit Briar Forest…then past Briar Forest on the feeder…u-turn at the next light and then I am at work. It isn’t too pleasant and I would change jobs and take a pay decrease just to have a shorter commute to work. But I do have a really good job with great benefits. The only problem is that it is so freaking far away. We were closer but management figured that it would be best to move further from our customers in the ship channel.

From the Woodlands down the HardyBahn to 610 to 45 into Downtown. Of course that is typically done in the cage.

From the North:

South on 59 - usually HOV
Take I-10 West to 610 South, exit San Felipe - 32 miles

If traffic's backed up on I-10 I'll go all the way to downtown then hit Memorial Dr

As for me....
Get on flight # whatever, head South (wwaayy South). 15 hours later, reach Luanda, Africa, get on another flight to Soyo, Africa. 24 hours later at work....finally!!!

It all depends on the project I am working on. On a regular day going to the office, I get on BW8 S to I-10W to Hwy6. This is a terrible ride, more like a commute....SUCKS!

I take the same route, except I exit Westheimer. Only I leave @ 5:30 in the morning. No traffic
