Touring Tuesday - South Carolina to Key West

Whoever designed this road must hate cyclists
In 2013 Jim Sayer of the Adventure Cycling Association rode from Charleston, South Carolina to Key West with his 14 year old daughter and eight other cyclists. He reported that Florida was pretty bicycle friendly, but South Carolina and Georgia were a little deficient (Compare the photo above with the one below). Although the rumble strips forced them off the shoulder, drivers were extremely courteous and gave them plenty of room (Look at the semi above). Jim also reported that southerners lived up to their reputation for "Southern Hospitality", and the food along the way was excellent.

Florida has lots of bike lanes
