I'm thinking about starting biking to work from Hilliard to OSU. Does anybody know a good route?
Hilliard-OSU biking routes anybody?

cemetary rd/fishinger rd straight up to kenny & hang a right
or take a right on Mountview off Fishinger east of Riverside Dr and head south to Lane
less traffic that way until you get to Lane
Based on my experience, this is the best route: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Main+St&daddr=40.033103,-83.1109207+to:40.0256733,-83.083744+to:40.0093162,-83.0663437+to:Neil+Ave&hl=en&ll=40.020122,-83.086853&spn=0.090051,0.152092&sll=40.010886,-83.063636&sspn=0.022516,0.038023&geocode=FZTeYgIdqBUL-w%3BFU_bYgId-NML-ylFSaioOpI4iDHW5j8PfguB7g%3BFUm-YgIdID4M-ynLmv4xAZI4iDEP4q3UiTLifA%3BFWR-YgIdGYIM-ympMGU6EI44iDFogO9nAAGqAw%3BFQJdYgIdGEkN-w&dirflg=b&mra=dpe&mrsp=3&sz=15&via=1,2,3&t=m&z=13&lci=bike
Fishinger is not very hospitable to bikes with heavy high speed traffic. This route certainly highlights the lack of good east-west bike connections in the city. Please be careful!
I definitely want to try to avoid heavy high speed traffic as much as possible.
Roberts Road and Alton Darby.
Go to Trabue and Renner and take the #5 to across the river?
Personally, I prefer intersections without interchanges, so if I were only making the journey with only a bike I would take Trabue across the river.
For a short while I commuted by car along Trabue. People tend to speed along the section nearer UPS and the train yard which also has rolling small hills (created by the overpassses) which limit visibility. At night I would probably be scared witless if attempting by bicycle. It is amazing how busy Trabue has gotten in only the last few years during the morning and evening commutes.
