It can be done. In under 20 minutes.
If the City of Charlottesville would finish their side of the Meadowcreek Parkway, the ride would be a bit faster and easier.
Update: The John Warner Parkway is open from Downtown Charlottesville to Rio Road, and it’s a wonderful thing, with trails and bike lanes (although the bike lanes are always full of debris)
I rode my bike from Nest to the Belvedere neighborhood today because I wanted to:
1 – Be able to tell my clients/demonstrate it could be done
2 – Save gas
3 – Get exercise
4 – Enjoy the insanely beautiful if inconsistent weather we’ve had today.
Mission accomplished. In under 20 minutes.
If it hadn’t looked so ominously that it was going to rain, I would have ridden to my next appointment at Cville Coffee.
Note to my wife: I wore my helmet.It’s also easier to stop and take pictures when riding on a bike. 🙂
