Subject: 175th Street Between Olathe & Gardner

Does anyone else ride this part of 175th Street?  It's between Olathe and Gardner.

I've been on it before and had few problems, but last Saturday I was on it at 6:30am and got honked at 3 times.  What gives?  Anyone else get harassed on this road?  Should I avoid it?

With 83rd closed east of Desoto, I'm running out of quality ride routes...

Last week I rode 179th westbound from Quivera.  It curves north and becomes 175th, rode that only to Lackman, then rode back to Quivera.  I didn't have any problems in that short section.  It was Sunday morning between 8:15 and 8:45.

I ride it frequently between Mission road and Gardner and have never had an issue, been doing that for a couple years now. I would chalk it up to a onetime thing.

Ride it all the time too. Always found it to be one of the more "jerk free" areas.

I had many problems there, but still ride it a lot. But, that is me, I seem to be a magnet for morons. Mostly white trash/ gun racked pick up trucks are the ones road raging and honking. No to offend anyone here if you have a pick up with a gun rack.

Doesn't 199th get a little tight west past 69? 

Here is my usual route, sometimes I'll go north on Mission/Metcalf to add a few miles in.

That's part of my long ride route, I take 199th West from Mission to Lackman.  Not bad in my opinion but I'm usually out there before 8:00 AM on weekends.

Maybe with traffic might be tight.

L45 - 2010-09-19 2:01 PM Chip and seal alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!175th from Lone Elm to west of Claire Road is a disaster and it looks as if they getting ready to start on 199th going from 169 west to Gardner Road. 

Got this heads up from a friend at work. He said it was worse than just the normally awful chip and seal. I don't go that far west too often, will be avoiding it for sure till it isn't a mess anymore.

Rode 175th this morning, chip seal isn't too bad anymore, the shoulders are as clear as normal except along the right turn lanes.  I think the rain we had the past week cleaned it up pretty well, it was really nasty last weekend.
