There is no state with narrower roads, narrower shoulders, and more voter suppression than Louisiana, except maybe Georgia.
That’s not a fair statement, I’ve never cycled the roads in Georgia, but it is safe to say (as of today) Georgia leads America in voter suppression. I’ll have to go cycle the roads there to make an accurate comparison.
In defense of Louisiana (this is where I make James Carvel proud, even though he was born in Georgia…) the nicest people I’ve met in the South were in Louisiana. Mississippi came in a close second.
I haven’t seriously considered returning to the South for another epic ride, but I have to admit, the Natchez Trace Parkway is calling my name…
