I'm an experienced bike commuter and touring cyclist. I have passions for folding bikes, drawing and painting, and playing my guitars. I'm often seen hauling groceries with or taking photos from my bike. I'm also a musician, and my band also has released a few albums.

comment Allez vs Secteur
This is more of a discussion question than anything else. I'm voting to place this on hold for now, but you can probably improve this by adding more detail about your circumstances, as per this answer on meta.

comment Is it possible to predict when roads will have less traffic?
@romkyns - I've significantly reworded this to address some of the concerns in the comments. As a touring cyclist myself who loves the planning phase of a trip, I hope that my changes will head off any more close votes. But please don't hesitate to rollback my edit if you feel I've changed your meaning too much.
