Contemplating my twice-a-week bicycle commute. It is 16.2 miles between Moncks Corner and Summerville. Most of the ride is on Hwy 17-A which is a busy 4 lane highway. The section from my apartment in Summerville to Cypress Gardens Rd is the busiest section. Cypress Gardens Rd intersection to Moncks Corner is lower traffic and a pleasant ride.
Pros 4 hours of exercise a week Green Commute Enjoyable Accomplishing 2 things a once (commute and exercise) Cons Dangerous Abuse from drivers (yelling, honking, revving, close drive by) The benefits are many but sometimes feel that I am being irresponsible to my family and to my employer by risking my life on my bike.
