    My commute sucks.

    I mean really.

    Every day it is the same thing.

    How am I supposed to go to work after that?

    LOL - I was just about to make a similar comment.

    fantastical shots as always MB1...and cross posting is a good thing as many of the peeps here may not have an rbr account and wouldn't be privy to your amazing camera skillz

    Work is the curse of the biking classes.

    Looks like a very nice commute, but any ride repeated hundreds of times gets boring...

    beauty shots; first one is killer

    i didn't know what was meant by rbr until i googled it and roadbikereview came up. i have an account there but rarely go. after checking a couple of your threads just now, you take some very nice pics. i love urban bike shots

    Jeeze Mb....

    wish my commute sucked like that!!! Very beautiful, but it would be tough to go into work after a ride like that. But still a little scenery makes a commute SO much more enjoyable. Sigh! Guess I'll just have to put up with my drab boring little ride into work every day!

    The only commute that really sucks is one done by car.

    the only commute that sucks is one in which you are hit by a car.

    I still need to get around to posting how boring my commute is. I still love it just to get me outside and on the bike and out of traffic. I just need to figure out what shots to take. It's probably the least photogenic commute anyone could think of.

    take some pics; after seeing this thread last night i was tempted to take my camera this morning as mine has some potential; trains, bridges old and new, and had about 5 deer right near me as i rode by a city bird sanctuary. plus, any pic looks cool if you stick a bike in it.

    I have some ideas. Maybe this weekend I'll get around to finally building a panorama head for my tripod . . .

    Fantastic shots, looks like it would be hard to stop when you arrived at work.

    I wouldn't be worth a damn at work after that crap...because I'd be getting up 2-3 hours earlier to do laps! And getting home after dark from doing more laps! OMG!!!

    Hmmmmm.... was thinking I was looking at pix of the Delaware Canal tow path in eastern PA - except yours appears much nicer, as I recall the stretches I jogged and cycled on in Bristol PA Nice shots, and nice to be able to commute using the towpath....very nice.

    Well let's see; 1 lap = 368 miles.

    You would be late for work!

    I'm surprised you get to work after setting up all those pictures.

    I keep a flask in the desk as a reward for getting to work.

    It seems like the problem is you are falling in a pile of pink flowers every day. Have you considered working on your balance or perhaps not clipping in so you can catch yourself when you fall?
