Hi Scott,

I just took a quick look at the data and it all seems to be there. One thing to keep in mind is that starting on Section 5, you have a number of options for getting to Seaside. You will need to choose your option and connect those routes.

Can you tell me anything more about what seems to be missing on your end?

Best,

Hi Kate,

Welcome to bicycle touring! Every state has some sort of bicycle map and information via their Department of Transportation. You can see what is available in each state from this page:

http://www.pedbikeinfo.org/data/state.cfm

Some of the info is great, some is a bit more spotty.

I'd suggest taking a look at the resources and plotting out a general idea of your route. Then come back here with that info in hand as well as the kind of touring you want to do (hotels or camping? cooking or eating out?) asking your question again. It is sometimes easier for others to respond if they have a clearer picture of what you are looking for and planning.

Best,
.Jennifer.

Routes / Re: NEW: GDMBR shuttle information
« on: January 23, 2015, 09:31:39 am »
It sure is still available! The website has been updated since that forum post went up. You can find the current shuttle pdf on the Logistics tab for the main Great Divide Mountain Bike Route page.

Hope this helps.

You might try this website. They list B&Bs on the Adventure Cycling Route Network. I would imagine most of them would be open to help you out..

I hope this helps.

We received an update on this closure as follows.

It looks like SR-1 will reopen on 2/2/15.

To check the status, open the website below - "Zoom" in to Los Angles/Pt Mugu and then turn on "lane closures".  You will see two orange cones on the highway. Click on one of the cones and it will update you on the highway's reopening.

Rankin Tickle,

Kansas also just produced a new bicycle route map you might want to take a look at. It is available as a pdf download from the Kansas DOT.

Routes / Re: Southern Tier Section 4 Map 56 and 57 and Beyond

FYI: You can research the legality of freeway riding (and lots more!) for each state on this page from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center:

http://www.pedbikeinfo.org/data/state.cfm

For instance, it says in Texas: "Bicycling on Interstates and Freeways in Texas is Allowed (Discouraged, but not prohibited).

FYI: If the Northern Tier sections 3 and 4 are older than 2012, it is unadvisable to use them. See this blog post for more information:

The others may be brought to current using the online addenda system:

Routes / Re: California Hike Bike Sites closures
« on: October 29, 2014, 06:52:30 pm »
Thanks OldDogBC. I recently had contact with the California State Park and they had further information.

The San Onofre BLUFFS Campground in San Onofre SB is closed Oct 1-May 15. However, there is a campground 1.5 mi. off route at San Mateo Campground year around. This is also part of the San Onofre SB. We will clarify this in an addenda and at next reprint of the map.

Hello Greyghost,

Much of the GDMBR is open to motorcyclists and has been done on motorcycles. Use caution and have respect for slower moving vehicles/people and that will go a long way.

We did a blog post on the topic here:

https://www.facebook.com/notes/adventure-cycling-association/dual-sport-riders-take-to-the-great-divide/448376625794

Also, if you do an internet search for 'great divide mountain bike route motorcycle' (without the quotes) a number of related links to blogs and forums will appear that can point out the dicey areas.

I hope this helps.

Best,
.Jennifer.
