That was dumb. I could not, for the life of me, find my lungs until I was 12-13 miles in. Then there's being at the mercy of the lights - I hit a full traffic light cycle literally one block in to the segment and another four or so significant traffic light delays throughout the loop. I'll probably ride it at tempo every once in a while, just for the variety of having a new-to-me short route, and then try to turn myself inside-out again in another month or so.
That sounds like it just shouldn't be a segment. We have a few long ones on the tri-training highway, but they have essentially zero cross traffic. Lights? No.
