I try to never take L'ville Hwy. I think successful riding in Atlanta starts with picking your route. There are times I like to mix it up with the traffic, but any road with a posted speed of 45 mph and actual speed of 50+ is not my idea of a good time.

My usual route is through Scottdale, Avondale Estates, Decatur, Chandler Park, Litttle Five Points, Inman Park and Edgewood Ave. Almost all the streets are 25, 30, or 35 mph, and it has a nice bike path along a good portion of it.
