Ride into work for Friday, 30 November

No ride home yesterday as I was working extremely late helping trying to get a server up and running and ended up getting a ride home from a co-worker. I did, however, get a chance to go out to MEC and pick up a lanyard (amongst other items) so I could carry a camera on me to satisfy the curiosity about my commute - at least, up to the point where the batteries in the camera died!

Here's where I get on the Mainland North Linear Parkway:

Straight away I'm on an uphill. It's also very straight (as the name implies).

Up and over the hill, leading down to the crossing on Lacewood:

More linearity:

Riding along Willett, still in the thick jungles of suburbia:

Downhill on Central. The stepping of the houses gives a reasonably good idea of how steep this is.

So steep that no pedaling is required to hit 50km/hr:

Big jump to George Dauphinee Avenue after riding through some high traffic areas:

Up the little alleyway to the crossing across Connaught:

Somewhere on Connolly Street, I think:

Finally, going up Berlin Street:

As I said, not all that exciting, but it should give people an idea of what Halifax looks like from the seat of a bike.
