Thanks! It's a suggestion and I guess someone needs to make a call on which route we will take.sometimerider said:It's not any longer - it's almost exactly the same distance.
Ok, I have created an alternate route that follows your suggestion - http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/RBR-IIa-4-6-08
(I have also corrected an error in the connection to Miranda Ave at the end of the ride - and corrected it on the earlier RBR II map.)
I certainly won't be the one choosing the "official" route (let's see how high we can elevate this thing), so both maps are offered.
