Riding from Ohio to FL - Avoid Atlanta?
Hey US Southeast! North Central rider here. I've got a work conference in Naples FL next month and, I'm planning on riding down; because who wouldn't!! Now, I ride through Dayton OH (home) all the time. No big deal. Ridden through Cincinnati without issue. Took a trip last year and rode through Nashville on the way to Memphis (and back). No problem.
But I hear Atlanta GA is a NIGHTMARE! Is there a decent path around it (farther out than the I-285, which I hear is just as bad as straight through)? I have a planned overnight stop in Calhoun GA so, I'll be leaving there on a Tuesday morning. The return trip will have me going through/around ATL on the following Sunday - probably mid-afternoon.
Any guidance appreciated!
