General Discussion / ACA Maps & 2-lane Highways - how often?
« on: April 16, 2020, 05:19:16 pm »
I'd really like to do more self-supported bike touring and I really like the ACA maps. And I'm an ACA member and big believer. One of my fears, that I need to get over, is just encountering dangerous stretches of road with not-friendly drivers. Especially given all the absent drivers these days staring at their phones. This passage from Adventure Cyclist Journal, February 2020, "Reunion", page 27.

"I’m talking about short sections of two-lane Highway 7 with barely a whisper of shoulder and a rumble strip embedded into the white line. Drivers wanted us off the road. Sure, they were unaccustomed to cyclists. But they had a good point — and they emphasized that by laying on the horn and passing within a hair’s breadth."

How often have you encountered this and how do you not let it keep you off the roads?
