Hi My name is John and I am a member of 'The Sons of Shankly' a group of middle to old aged lunatics from Liverpool England who raise money for Mc Millan Cancer Relief. We cycled Route 66 in the summer of 2005 and raised $50.000 for the cause. In July - August of 2012 we are attempting to cycle along Route 66 again but will via off near springfield and cycle on through Kentucky and Vaginia. We will then be able to say we cycled from the Pacific in Los Angles to the Atlantic at Virginia Beach. If anyone could advise us about the route from Route 66 at Springfield to Vaginia Beach we would be most greatful.
Good luck with your personal adventures or goals.

The Transamerica route crosses old Route 66 just east of Springfield, at Marshfield, MO. You could stay on old 66 'til there, then follow the TransAm to near Yorktown, VA and figure out a route from there to Virginia Beach, only a short distance away.
