The Experience of Time in Motion
I'm about to drive up to Phoenix. Thanks to the wondrous hospitality of a friend, I've been staying up there on Monday and Wednesday nights so that I can avoid the brutal early-morning commute of last fall. The strange thing, though, is that I'm actually more reluctant to go at this time than when I'm rushing out the door with the knowledge that five minutes squandered can mean thirty minutes of extra stop-and-go traffic at the other end of the journey. Maybe that will change, as I settle into my routine. At the very least, this new schedule is good practice for most of my possible futures. I just wish that the time spent on the interstate would feel shorter than it does. Somehow the knowledge that dawn would greet me en route sustained me last fall in a way that the monotony of white-line fever does not.

Take the back road once in a while. Straight up Oracle to the 79, turn to Coolidge as you hit the edge of Florence and ride that to the 202 in the Chandler burbs. It's a great mood-changer.

I've gone through Apache Junction before, which is nice but out of the way. What road do I take from Florence to meet up with the 202?

Just as you start getting to Florence, take Highway 87 to Coolidge. Stay on that an it runs you right into Arizona Ave. in Chandler. Probably 5 miles or so later that hooks into the 202.
