Hi Preston,

I posed your question to Alaska Airlines via Twitter (@alaskaair) and got this response:

Hi! we'll accept your bike provided it is properly packed in a soft or hard sided case designed specifically for bikes. -Linnea

I don't know that there are any hard and fast reasons why Bicycle Route 66 could not be ridden west to east. In part, it will depend on your timing. For example, you don't want to be in the desert stretches of California at the height of summer.

Hello France,

What you are downloading is data, not a map. Where ever you display the data, you will need a background map from that source (smart device or gps unit).

Currently, the GPS data for that routing can be found on this page:

There is also support available through the GPS Discussion area:


We just received notice of this bridge closure and the KY DOT recommended detour:

Between Mercer, Garrard County Line and Breezy Way. The bridge is closed. The road is closed for repairs. A detour is in operation. See map for detour(s). For the next six months.

The Kennedy Mill Bridge on KY 152 at the Garrard Co/Mercer Co line is blocked. From the Garrard Co side to the Mercer Co side, motorists can take KY 152 East to US 27 South to KY 34 West to KY 2168 West to KY 33 North back to KY 152 East. From Mercer to Garrard, take KY 152 West to KY 33 South to KY 2168 East to KY 34 East to US 27 North to back to KY 152 West.


And here is the Inci-Web page to follow the fire:


Routes / Re: route 66 updates

There was a blog post on the issues we were having with the route in California due to bridges being out and road conditions being extremely poor:

Specific information on the detours necessary are on the addenda for Bicycle Route 66 Section 6:

When you buy the maps a paper version of the addenda will be included but it is also advised to check online before you go and part way through your trip for updated information.


There is a bridge out just before McLean, IL and no clear directions on what to do

I'd like to look into this. Can you give me more information about where this is? Is it any of the projects listed on this page:

I sent this out on Twitter to help you find the answer. Someone forwarded it to Good Bike Co in Prineville. They might know something, I'd check with them:


Routes / Re: Shoulders / Bike Lanes on ACA Routes

Sorry for the delayed response. We are in the midst of another map update, the last of which should be going to the printer today.

I will chime in on one of the original questions asked: Does ACA have some kind of formula for making their routes?

As John mentioned, we consider many factors when choosing a route. There is no specific "A+B= awesome route" formula but we do look at information such as road condition (shoulders, rumble strips, etc.), traffic counts, local input, service availability, and for historically-based routes such as the Underground Railroad and Bicycle Route 66, historic features. It is a balancing act for sure. And every cyclist has different preferences so we're never going to please everyone with every decision. We evaluate on a route by route basis and consider feedback about current routes making changes as appropriate or possible.

I looked up their website and send an email to the address listed. It bounced back. I would guess they are no longer in business. I will have an addenda added online.
