Even better than I-75 through Atlanta? or 1-95 through....anywhere?
Yep, I'm supposed to ride to La. next week. If I take U.S. 90, the route I prefer, it's gonna take 13+ hrs as it passes through many towns. If I take I-10 it will take about 8 hrs. but I might fall asleep. I think I'll be taking a hybrid route.You a funny guy!
I've done 75 through Atlanta twice. Never again.
I've done 95 from Cocoa Beach Florida to it's Northern terminus in Houlton, Maine. (Not all in one trip). There are two emotions that cover ALL of 95...mind-numbing boredom or abject terror. I did 95 through NYC once. Every other trip (and there have been several) have involved staying well West of that shithole and rejoining 95 in Joisey. Not that that's much of an improvement...
Precisely why my riding mileage this year is about half what it usually is: I've been everywhere even remotely interesting in my preferred 1-2 hour radius. Anything new would require at LEAST an hour, and likely two, of "grit yer teeth and get 'er done" riding to get to, resulting in a 5-6 hour day on the bike with is too much for my tired old bones. This year has been pretty much "take the bike to town" whenever logistics permit.One of the hard things about where I live, is that to get to anywhere really interesting, I have to endure an hour or more slog on an interstate highway , packed with semi trucks and people trying to break the land speed record.
That’s why 95% of my rides are desert and farm land that I can kinda stitch together with a few carefully chosen back roads. Urban sprawl is quickly burying my back roads though.
