Call for submissions

I bike between Durham and Chapel Hill. That is pretty much the extent of my cycling besides a weekend ride here and there. Yet my blog is called "Triangle Bicycle Commuter" implying a much larger scope than Durham to Chapel Hill.

I would love to add some posts about biking between/within Raleigh, Cary, Carrboro, Morrisville, and other communities within the triangle.

So if you have a favorite commuter route, use the comment section to contact me. I would love to add some variety to the blog to make it a more useful resource for local cyclists.

Hi, thanks for posting your experiences. I am thinking about moving to the triangle area from DC, where I've been a daily bike commuter for over a decade. Hubby and I are in the mulling over stage, so no idea where a job(s) might be (if we're lucky enough to find one between us), but if we did move it's important to us to live in a neighborhood where we can bike commute and walk to at least a few things. I'm looking for routes between Durham and Chapel Hill/Carrboro that maximize safety and enjoyment. I ride 9-12 miles a day currently, so I would think that CH-Durham would fall in that range. Are there any good sources for tried and true bike routes in the area??

Hi Sam,
Check out the tarwheels bike club. They have a bunch of recommended rides in the area. I think you have to pay for a membership now, but I think it is $20 a year.
