From home to my new job it is about 10 km one-way, almost exactly on the other side of the city where I live. The problem with cycling straight through town is that I get hung up in other cyclists (that are going much slower) and have to stop for all the traffic lights.
The idea is to find a nice route that takes me outside of town and with a minimum on stops. I tried a new route from work to home that took me around through Rosemalen, but that ended up being 18 km's one-way to home. I guess I will keep looking.
Having only cycled once this week due to being a bit sick (throat infection, taking antibiotics) my total distance was only 28 km's.
