Hi there,

Have you looked at the resources available through the Florida DOT?

You could also contact the Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator for suggestions:

Dennis Scott
State Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator

phone: 850-245-1527
fax: 850-245-1554
dennis.scott@dot.state.fl.us

Dwight Kingsbury
Assistant Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator

phone: 8502451520
fax: 8502451554
dwight.kingsbury@dot.state.fl.us


Good luck and let us know what you find out.

Bicycle Route 66 / Re: Welcome to Bicycle Route 66!

You may be aware already, but if not, FYI:  There is in print a fine mapset giving a good overview of the Route 66.  It is a 8 map set, one for each state, called  "Here It Is, Route 66, The Map Series", by Jerry McClanahan and Jim Ross.  It is available on Amazon, and may help your research.

Thanks, we'll look into it.

Thanks for posting info on a detour for this closure!

Just received this report via Twitter:

> Long-term closure on #acapacificcoast between Palo Colorado Rd and Bixby Bridge in Big Sur. 40ft of road disappeared today.

This occurs on Map 47. CalTrans also reports that SR 1 is closed from 2.5 mi. S. to 1.5 mi. S. of Big Sur. No detour evident.

Welcome Danielle!

I am also looking for suggestions on a route from Fort Myers Beach to the Tamiami Trail east of Naples. Anyone familiar with navigating this urban area? So far we have looked on Google maps and charted our best guess of a route through the cities.

You might want to check your Google map suggestions against the maps found on the Florida DOT Bicycle Pedestrian page:

http://www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/ped_bike/touringInfo/ped_bike_touringInfo_maps.shtm

Or you could get in tough with their office directly for their opinion and/or suggestions:

Dennis Scott
State Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 850-245-1527
fax: 850-245-1554
dennis.scott@dot.state.fl.us

Dwight Kingsbury
Assistant Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 8502451520
fax: 8502451554
dwight.kingsbury@dot.state.fl.us


Hope that helps.

GPS Discussion / Re: UGRR Section T02150 and Great Rivers D02280
« on: March 03, 2011, 09:03:13 am »
Never mind....after a really close review of a handful of wps i have discovered that if a waypoint is "on top" of another road i.e a bridge or overpass...the software didnt allways get it where it was intended....i.e itwas supposed to be on the "bottom" road....it recalulate a new route..

Aha, glad there was a reason things looked askew to you!

I am planning a Mobile Al to Springfield Mo(or St. Louis) in May 2011.  I overlaid sections the UGRR (T02150)and GR (D02280) and one of intersections confuses me.

Is there a reason that the two routes  don’t share the same roads between WP T020Z0/D02850 and T020T0/D028C0?


From what I can tell, between the two waypoints you indicate, the routes are both the same - the Natchez Trace Parkway. The waypoints that were created to show this were done by two different people and as such different selections were made.

I hope that helps.

Hi Nicolas!

You might want to sign up with www.warmshowers.org to find a place to stay in NY. Or anywhere else along the Atlantic Coast Route.

If it works for you, Monroeville is very welcoming of cyclists.  There is an air conditioned community center where you can spend the night.

Yes! Thanks for promoting Monroeville, one of our longest standing Cyclists' Only Lodging options. You can read more about them in a blog post:

You might want to check Charlie Myer's blog http://backroadsofindiana.blogspot.com/ and look into getting his book. I've read rave reviews of it as a resource. I think he also reads these forums now and then.

Good luck and let us know how it went.

Routes / Re: Info Required for First Time Southern Tier
« on: March 01, 2011, 11:01:26 am »
I suppose it depends on what you're looking to experience. In the timeframe you mention, it will require 100 mile days on end, tough to do but even more so as the daylight will be getting shorter at that point. And you won't get to experience much off the bike or have any days for rest, checking out something intriguing, etc. You might want to consider starting somewhere mid-way across like Austin, Texas, or another route entirely. You could do much of the Pacific Coast in that time, see a lot of Florida (including the Keys). I'm others have suggestions, too.

Have fun with the planning!

.Jennifer.
