Ok - reading about the routes in the other thread makes me wonder.
How do you plan your route, or do you at all??
Riding 40-100 miles - is it a path? Do you just go where you feel like & turn around eventually?
I've been "discovering" my neighborhood really - seeing where all those little side roads go & yes, turning around after half of my designated ride time is over to head back - some roads I know well enough so my "back route" can vary a little bit. But if I were to want to go for 20 or more miles I wouldn't have a clue where to go except to ride around in circles!!!
