My bud and I ran the LHTs on some errands together before work the other day. We finished up a little over 6 miles from work and rocked the most direct route possible - mostly a 35 mph divided boulevard. Speeds ranged fro 20 - 25 mph except at intersections. We still managed to average 18mph from door to door and elapsed time was 20 minutes. (See the map displayed during the end credits).
I should put this in A&S as an example that speed and "proper" lane position will keep you from getting right hooked!
For you Long Haul Trucker fans - I can't imagine Truckers rockin' the roads much better than this, especially mine toting 10 lbs of cat food in my rear panniers!
This one starts out a little boring perhaps, but at 3:30 we are rocking 23-25mph for a long stretch, then dive into the grid for some tight squeezes in light traffic. Still really fast but a little bumpy.
