I find merging easy providing you have two mirrors.

Many US states allow riding in the interstate.  None in the east but quite a few in the west.

Most folks have a strong preference for avoiding the interstates.  I kind of like riding on the interstate sometimes, but am not convinced that it is much if any safer due to having to cross merge areas at the intersections.

General Discussion / Riding on the US Interstates
« Last post by rogermcd on August 26, 2014, 03:12:19 pm »
I have just heard of the tragic death of Joanna Abernathy, a fellow Australian.

She was just west of Indianapolis when she was hit and killed by a drunk driver, in the early hours of the 10th August 2014.

I have  cycled across the US twice now using AdventureCycling's routes and once across Canada ( just completed ) and once across Australia.

On my trip across the US in 2012, I used the interstate highway across North Dakota, the only state which allows cyclist on the interstates, as I understand things.

From this single experience compared to the thousands of miles on back roads, I know for  sure  that cycling on the interstate highways in the US is much safer

I would like to see AdventureCycling take this on as a campaign to get this stupid prohibition lifted right across the US.  If I were a US citizen I would certainly start such a campaign

Had Joanna been on an interstate I am sure she  would probably be alive today, not withstanding drunk drivers and the foolishness of riding at 3am in the morning

I would love to hear the views of other experienced cyclists on this topic.
