What is this new product?
Adventure Cycling is now offering GPS data in the format of GPX tracks. The tracks are navigational paths, following our Adventure Cycling Routes, that will display as a line on your device. When GPS is turned on, an indicator will show your location in relation to that line. This data may be used on a GPS device, smartphone, or tablet. Use it with the paper maps of the Adventure Cycling Route Network to improve your navigation, both on and off the route.
How is it different than what was previously offered?
This data is of higher accuracy, greater compatibility across multiple devices and is more user-friendly than the legacy GPS waypoint data.
Why am I now paying for this?
This data represents a significant commitment of time to produce and support. It is much more accurate and the intention is to update it more frequently. In 2014, we released some new digital data for free as a trial. We have made changes and improvements based on comments from those using trial data. New products are now available for purchase.
To relive early Route 66 travelers’ experience of crossing mile after mile of seemingly endless, empty high desert, divert from Adventure Cycling’s route and ride New Mexico Highway 6 between Los Lunas and I-40 Exit 126.
“Sky City” of Acoma Pueblo is well worth the scenic 15-mile side trip south of Route 66. The pueblo, the longest continuously-inhabited community in North America (since 1150) sits atop a 357-foot-high mesa, with spectacular views overlooking a green valley circled by cliffs and mesas. A new museum and visitor center has an extensive collection of art and artifacts, as well as information about the pueblo. Tours of the pueblo (the only way visitors are permitted) are very informative. The visitors’ center has a good restaurant. Roads from I-40 Exits 96 and 108 lead to the pueblo.
Cave-in-Rock ferry (TransAm/Kentucky/Illinois/Ohio River) was closed due to flooding/high water. Since 2.5-3 inches of rain are expected tomorrow [3.13.15]will be added to melt water from snow north of there....they expect it to be closed for at least a week.
