If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
Oh man, 24 to Tonganoxie is a dangerous road. Be careful.
Yeah, I know. I've ridden it about a dozen times now. I like the very wide shoulders on the East/West leg, but the North/South leg is more like the roads south of K10; it has no shoulder at all. They just take a little more vigilance and attention paid to the sounds coming up behind. I've a helmet mounted mirror I'll be using.
I just stumbled onto your blog today, via the KC bike commuting blog. This route seems, um, intense. I live near 72nd and Ballentine, and commuted to Lawrence for four years. I did briefly entertain the notion of someday riding my bike to Lawrence, but riding the bus home. Your efforts are admirable.
