You know stories with headlines like:
"Best town to raise a family"
"Top Ten cities to grow old in"
"Top Towns to to ride your bike"
"Ten Best cities in America"
When it comes to amateur endurance athletics everybody probably has good idea of the top towns in America to live and train.
San Diego, California
Santa Fe, New Mexico
to name just a few.
But what are the towns and cities that are unfriendly, and perhaps unkind to amateur endurance athletes.
Places that don't have bike friendly roads or convenient running trails. Towns and cities that suffer from pollution, congestion, crime and severe cold or rain.
For instance Juneau, Alaska is a lovely town but it is landlocked and it rains 300 days per year.
Houston, Texas with its many wide highways is certainly car friendly but not so much when it comes to riding your bike after work.
Las Vegas and Atlantic City are great places to gamble, but it is very hot in Las Vegas most of the year and very cold in the winter and humid in the summer in Atlantic City.
In general, these are places that amateur endurance athletes might want to avoid if they plan their days around a daily swim, bike or run.
We've put together a list of the Worst Places in America to Train based on these training unfriendly criteria.
