The Three-Hour Tour - 5th Stop, The Roads of Second Life

Route 12 Map from the Wiki, don't know why it says "Route Z".
Remember when I suggested you pick up a free bicycle at the last stop? If you didn't, it's OK, I just wanted to show you one of the many roads of Second Life.  I like the hobo bicycle because I like to go slow and enjoy the view. You don't have to look for a spot to rezz it, either, because you wear it.

Route 12 doesn't have any fancy landmarks along the way, but you will see a lot of different things that residents have done with their land. This route is in Pouncival in Nautilus and parts I checked were made in 2009.

The dirt road really isnt suitable for large vehicles
There are maps along the route

There are many different roads. Some are nicely paved, others resemble dirt roads, while still others may just be raised wooden walkways. I think they are a good way to get a feel for a neighborhood if you are thinking to buy land.

Here are some more interesting roads: This is in Koleamoku in Sansara and someone has placed a bicycle rezzer right next to the road. Nice!

Another road, Route 7, is on Gaeta V. Apparently it was intended to circle the island, but now there are many gaps along the way. Worth a try.

To see many more vehicle routes (including water routes) check the Second Life Wiki at

You may meet a pod traveling along the road - don't worry about collisions, the vehicles are phantom. I'll talk more about them at the next stop.
