We've received reports that there is a bike path closure in Monterey that will last until July 10.

It has been suggested that if heading southbound, you should ride from Pearl St. onto Jefferson St., to Veteran's Park, to Skyline Dr. to SR 1.

If you have other suggestions for reroute, please post. I will update this discussion if I receive further information.

Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Connect PCH with SC

Hi Workinman,

I think CA 299 is in CalTrans District 1. You might contact the Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator for that district to see what information they have about it's suitability.

Please report back on what you find out.

Thanks,

A good place to start is to take a look at our route network map available as a pdf here: http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/overview-map-pdf/

The route you are likely to be most interested in checking out are the Florida Connector (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/florida-connector/) or Atlantic Coast section 7 (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/atlantic-coast/), Southern Tier (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/southern-tier/) and Pacific Coast section 5 (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/pacific-coast/).

For any of it that doesn't suit you, contact the bicycle/pedestrian coordinator for the state in which you need routing. Contact info found here: http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm

Once you've got some route ideas in mind (and time of year you want to ride), check in for feedback.

Best and have fun,
.Jennifer.

I recently came across this resource for bicycling in the San Juans. If you use it, let me know how helpful you found it.

There is a fire in Silver City, New Mexico closing the route through the area. See this blog post for a suggested route around:

Also, follow the fire on the InciWeb site:

Hello James,

It looks like most of the California State Parks have been funded one way or another and will remain open:

I hope this helps,

Have you looked at any of the resources from the Utah Department of Transportation page?

http://www.udot.utah.gov/main/f?p=100:pg:0:::1:T,V:11,

It looks like you might be able to put something together from that.

Best,

Good luck with your presentation! I looked at the maps you posted to your Facebook page. Do the dotted lines represent the roads you recommend for cyclists?

We've received a report that sections of the Katy Trail, which makes up the route on maps 1-8 of Lewis & Clark Section 1, are closed due to flooding.

The best resource for information is Missouri State Parks website: http://mostateparks.com/
Once there, scroll to the bottom to see Alerts and Advisories under the Things to Know heading on the right. From there, choose Katy Trail State Park from the drop down menu to see the most current report.

The report as of June 5 is here:

http://mostateparks.com/advisory/60601/flood-and-storm-damage-closures-katy-trail-state-park

Missouri Dept of Transportation has an interactive map showing the flooding conditions across the state: http://www.modot.org/

It is advisable to avoid Routes O and F around Fulton. They are narrow and carry a lot of traffic. If you must use them, 8am to 2 pm are probably the best hours, 3-5pm the worst.

You can use the resources from the Missouri Bike-Ped Program to help find detours as needed:

This closure has been extended until the week of July 3rd:

General Discussion / Re: North Nevada & Utah in summer
« on: June 04, 2013, 07:18:09 am »
Meanwhile, my planning brought me in the east side of Montana. I saw to go to Dickinson from Glendive there are some roads out the interstate 94. But I'll will travel with a road bike with thin tyres and I don't know if will be a good idea to cycling on unsealed roads. Is so dangerous to do a short piece of interstate 94? How is the traffic there?

On Section 3 of the Northern Tier route between Glendive and Dickinson, there are stretches on I-94. Where it's not, the route is on secondary, parallel roads. All roads are paved but can be rough in places. I think you'll be ok. Traffic will increase as you approach Dickinson.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the follow up information, Bigger_Al.

Just a warning. 169 is a freeway. If you have good tires the dirt road just east of 169 is okay.

On Google Maps it looks like a two lane highway with shoulders though they appear to be a bit crumbling in places. Imagery is from 2008 so maybe something has change in that time. Thankfully it is only a four mile stretch whichever solution you opt for though.

Unfortunately, I didn't find any information on the road closure (Elk Rd.) you encountered on the Kansas DOT site (http://511.ksdot.org/KanRoadPublic/Default.aspx) however, Neosho County road department suggested using US 169 which parallels Elk Rd. to get around that closure. I'm not sure if there is access to the Santa Fe Safari Campground via this routing or not.

Hope this helps those following Jana.
