Why you should know your morning commute!

I am new to the Houston area, been here about 2 months or so. Haven't really seen a lot of the area other than the freeways, so...this morning I leave for work on the bike, start on the beltway heading towards League City (Where I work) and then decide to take a different route that me and some dood were talking about yesterday.

So, I hook onto 59 south and then get on Hwy 6. About 20 minutes into it I realize I don't have a f*ing clue what road to get on to take me towards LC. Needless to I ended up turning my 45 mile commute in 100 miles! I freakin road all the way to Galveston and then had to backtrack on 45.

Nonetheless, it was probably the best commute I have had. 100 miles on the bike due to a mistake is better than 2 miles in the cage knowing where your going. Plus, I got to see some outlying ish.

True that. I am loving the fact that when its not raining here it's never too cold to ride.

I leave for work so freakin early that even with the BFE route I was still the first one in the office.

About 40 min each way with no traffic. The position, pay/incentives are good, plus I split the commute with the woman who already had the place picked out.

My neck of the woods. just take hwy 6 to 288. take a left on 288 and you will hit I45 next time.
