Anyone live near Highway 83?

Someone else here on BF told me that Highway 83 was a good cycling route all the way from Abilene TX to the Canadian/US border. Any comments on that opinion?

Good route up here in North Dakota. Very windy during the spring and early summer.

Some wind from the south, but the majority is out of the west and northwest.

I live right on US Highway 83 in Parker, CO.

Are you planning on dropping by?

It is mostly 2 lanes south of here, and very busy and not much of a shoulder.

I take 83 from Murdo S.D. to south of Abilene when I go to Austin Tx. it's a very good road. There seems to be a lot more truck traffic than there used to be. Some areas there may be 50 to 75 miles between towns. Wind is usually out of the northwest.
US 83 doesn't go through CO. it runs from the Canadian border north of Minot N.D. to the Mexican border at Laredo Tx.
I like 83 because it doesn't go through any big cities, the largest city on the route is Abilene and the road is a beltway around it.
