How is the climbing on Lincoln? That’s a route I’ve been meaning to try. I’m sure it’s not going to make things faster, but just as a fun alternate.
I’m familiar with Graham (I used to live in Blackridge). I’ve thought of ducking off Frankstown and taking Graham to Laketon and back to Frankstown. But that just ends up avoiding a relatively OK section of Frankstown and adds some climbing (which I already have more than enough of).
I wish there was a less steep way to do the last leg up to my house too. But I suppose that’s what I get for buying a house at one of the geographic high points of the city.
