Doesn't look bad here, 'cuz the map is old. It's way more cracked now. 55mph road, but with little traffic. This section is a 13mph grind going up and 20+ coming down. I spent more time dodging road cracks than pedaling...

And you're supposed to ride on that shoulder (I know I wouldn't ride on a 55mph road if it doesn't have a large enough shoulder)? That road is not cycling friendly that's for sure...

This one here, for example, look really quite good ... complete with little shoulder. @SylvainG ... you're lucky!

Didn't show the bad stretch. Here's a better view of it.

But yeah, compared to others, I don't have it "that bad". I had no point of reference hence why I started the thread
