I agree! Skip the highways... ESPECIALLY the !@#$%^&* Panamerican Highway thru South America!
Lol, well most of it anyway. About an hour out of Columbus it gets interesting, but then you're damn near out of the state.
BTW, Canadian joke here, did you hear about the Newfy truck drivers who were excited about Quebec seceding from Canada? It would be so much faster to get to Ontario!
Did that last week Well avoided Chicago and the central plains coming back from Newfoundland by going N of Lake Superior and to Wyoming then S to New Mexico.
Well sometimes you cant avoid big citys if you have to visit a embassy to get the visa for your next country there. Sometimes you cant also avoid countrys if you have to cross them. Otherwise i would recomend everybody to avoid nigeria were i got attacked and angola:
Thanks for all your replies. Seems like everyone avoids similar places. I try to avoid british countryside roads as I have had too many near misses although I love going to London and have nearly broken my back a few times.
Would love to hear more as I am hoping to hit the road late next year for a year long trip.
I try to avoid anything that may put me in stop and go traffic. Boring and dangerous. Also try to avoid being late. Leave early and give yourself time to explore backroads and enjoy the views and places most people miss.
If in California, avoid:
1. The entire San Joaquin Valley, especially in summer
2. Everything south of the Tehachapis
St. Louis. I get arrested there almost every time I go through.
Good to know. Anything more specific you'd like to add?
Well if I had a choice, I'd steer clear of America. That place is a shit hole.
Nothing but ass holes and fat chicks.
...and road cyclists.
The first time it was because I asked a cop what time it was and thanked him when he told me. Probable cause was my suspicious use of manners (seriously). It's been downhill from there.
Where are you planning to go? To the EU for starters, I suppose, based on your location now. Instead of where to avoid, I'd point you toward where to go.
When I'm heading west, I wish I could find a good way to avoid Houston. Its just like a big blister on the ass.
trying to ride accross Texas in general is a big blister....
Any city run into the ground by the Demo-Nazis. Detroit is a good example.
I do this too. Better scenery, fewer people to deal with, generally friendlier people to deal with when you do need to deal with people.
In general, I avoid cities when I can. I don't like being places where there is a high concentration of people.
I avoid interstates, large cities, and anywhere in the Northeast. To a lesser extent I try to avoid states that don't have the courtesy to honor my CCW with reciprocity.
Occasionally I have to go into towns on a trip to get oil, a tire, beer, etc. Otherwise I try to keep it as rural as possible.
I avoid Texas for this reason.
