Has anyone ever run from Fayetteville to Little Rock? If so, which way did you go? If not, which way would you go; factoring in traffic and shoulders?

I am trying to decide which of these routes to take. I am not concerned with the distance. I am mostly concerned with traffic, driver attitudes and shoulder space.

Route #1
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Fayetteville,+AR&daddr=Little+Rock,+AR&hl=en&geocode=FXRFJgIdjkVj-imdPrUve2_JhzHPyLT8afAZRQ%3BFXEwEgIdxcV_-imbVh-hNKHShzEXW_MNEPUFNA&mra=ls&dirflg=b&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=53.741627,110.478516&ie=UTF8&z=9&lci=bike

Route #2
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Fayetteville,+AR&daddr=35.287897,-94.0976905+to:Little+Rock,+AR&hl=en&geocode=FXRFJgIdjkVj-imdPrUve2_JhzHPyLT8afAZRQ%3BFVlzGgId5i5k-im1NtXS8aLLhzEfxQG6Sn6TKA%3BFXEwEgIdxcV_-imbVh-hNKHShzEXW_MNEPUFNA&mra=ls&dirflg=b&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=53.741627,110.478516&ie=UTF8&z=9&lci=bike&via=1

Route #3
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Fayetteville,+AR&daddr=35.848024,-93.3444085+to:Little+Rock,+AR&hl=en&geocode=FXRFJgIdjkVj-imdPrUve2_JhzHPyLT8afAZRQ%3BFVj_IgIdaK1v-ik934oOtiDMhzFydpVCcpQNrw%3BFXEwEgIdxcV_-imbVh-hNKHShzEXW_MNEPUFNA&mra=ls&dirflg=w&sll=35.40342,-93.21156&sspn=1.748403,3.452454&ie=UTF8&ll=35.404722,-93.216248&spn=1.748355,3.452454&z=9&via=1

Thanks for your suggestions,

Ryan Craig

I would vote #2. It would be the most boring, as there's no scenery after highway 71, but I would not run on highway 7 or the Pig Trail. Maybe I'm being overcautious, but on the Summer weekends there are constantly dumb kids speeding around the twisties. Option 3 would be especially tedious as even the more cautious recreational drivers won't be looking at you, they'll be looking out the window at the mountains.

Either way you take, good luck and be careful. Let us know how it goes.

Running along the interstate is illegal, so I'd drop that route idea. Good luck. I'll be looking for a report of your run after you finish it.

The bicycle suitability map on the Arkansass Highway and Transportation shows average daily traffic volumes and might be a useful resource for you in your planning.

TO Ryan, if you don't mind me saying so. look back over the years, count up your millage, take a step back. and YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISE that you have done a run from THE HILLS OF U 0F A to the plains of LR. just not in one big gulp, but where it counts a .. of time in a safer way. but whatever you decide your running friends will support you. GOOD LUCK KEEP US POSTED. I tip my hat to you I tip my hat to you I tip my hat to you We're Not Worthy We're Not Worthy We're Not Worthy We're Not Worthy Hooray and what not! Hooray and what not! feverish feverish
