Please share your past experience on touring. I have my own past experience but running only on my city.
I am on bicycle since I was 11 years old. I used it for moving in my city and I still do.
However I an concerned about the safety of this type of traveling, especially related to transit accidents and driving in a highway with a lot of cars in high speed (it looks like it's a very dangerous sport).
As an example I will share my experience driving in my city:
- On my bicycle I had like one injury accident (arm dislocation) and 4 almost transit accidents running only in my city.
- In my car I had one injury accident (head concussion), one non-injury accident, and 6 almost transit accident.
- None in autobus (however I spent more time on bike and in a car than in a autobus)
I was thinking whether it is better to take rural roads. Maybe highways are really boring for touring, and curves and downhill are better than long highways.
Is this more safe than traveling in a car, or other method of traveling?
