Hi, Jennifer:  Thanks for the link.  I'll check them out.  Had a Doh! moment and should have posted this on the routes forum.  Sorry.

No problem. =) I hope they can help you with your routing options.

Hi Scott,

You might want to contact the Arizona Bicycle and Pedestrian program with your question about US 60. They will know their resources and should be able to fill you in on the options/road conditions.

Let us know what you find out. We are always looking for ways to improve our routing.

I just found this information on the Oregon Coast Bike Route map (which can be downloaded here:

In Brookings, there is a bike shop that will provide a
bicycle box for free, or pack it for you for $25, so you
can take a commercial bus back to your point of origin.
Contact: Escape Hatch, 642 Railroad Street, Brookings OR,
97415; (541) 469-2914 or (800) 495-2453.

You might also want to check with the Oregon Dept of Transporation TripCheck service for more/other options:

Hope that helps.

Hi Cam,

You might start with the resources put together by the North Carolina DOT. They have maps and you can always contact them for further information.

Let us know what you come up with.

The production work on the Underground Railroad Detroit Alternate map has begun. It is scheduled to go to the printer in June 2011 which means we'll have it in-house late July-early August. I hope that is soon enough for your September trip.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the offer of assistance. Stay tuned. Where do you live? Your location will determine what kind of help we might ask for.

Thanks again,

As you may or may not know, Adventure Cycling recently announced our intention to create Bicycle Route 66 which will follow the historic US Route 66 highway as much as practical. You can read more in this press release:

And these two blog posts:

The main purpose of this forum area is to provide a place for cyclists to talk about the development of Bicycle Route 66, offer suggestions and generally stay up to date with the project as it unfolds.

We look forward to the conversation.

Placement of hot mix asphalt overlay on 3 ½ miles of existing highway continues from about 12 miles south of Big Sur just north of Burns Creek Bridge to south of Partington Ridge Road. One-way traffic control is in effect with daytime work hours tomorrow, Oct. 29 and overnight work next week from 6 pm to 6 am. Work is scheduled to complete by Friday, Nov. 5, weather permitting.

Construction on a retaining wall project near Gamboa Point, three miles north of Lucia is completed including striping. Traffic continues down to one lane just south of Lucia at Dani Creek with a temporary signal in place for soundwall installation. Work hours are from 7 am to 5 pm daily with work expected to be completed at the end of summer of 2011. Cyclists traveling southbound are required to press the signal button to activate a longer period to safely get through the narrow one-way uphill section.

The temporary signal about two miles south of Lucia at Pitkins Curve/Rain Rocks for the bridge/rockshed project remains in operation 24/7 with the project expected to be complete in winter 2012/2013.

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY: No projects currently under construction along this stretch in SLO County.

Caltrans reminds motorists/cyclists to “Share the Road” and that “we’re here to get you there.” For more information on you can call the toll-free project hotline at (888) 836-0866 or visit

Routes / Re: Key West to Northern Michigan

You might want to get in touch with the bicycle coordinators for the states in which you will be traveling through and need routing. Most have
online resources of some sort as well as printed materials. The coordinators have a wealth of information that they can distribute for no charge. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators:

Good luck and have fun!

You might want to look at the map of the Southern Region found on the following page to see the condition of SR 94 out of San Diego.

Good luck and have fun.


Alaska/Hawaii / Re: Why No AK or Hawai on Route Network?
« on: October 11, 2010, 08:35:26 am »
Why does Adventure Cycle not have any AK or HW routes in this section of their webpage? 

We have discussed both Alaska and Hawaii as possibilities for expanding our route network.

In Alaska, there aren't that many roads. Services can be difficult to come by and may even vary from year to year. Though geared toward RVs, The Milepost publication, found here:, is probably the best resource for gathering that information. It is updated and reprinted often (annually, I believe) which we do not have the resources to do.

As for Hawaii, the list of researchers volunteering for this assignment is long! ;-) It's a possible destination in the future but is not currently on the schedule. Again, there are not a lot of road choices for most of the islands and getting from island to island is no cheap feat with a bicycle. Also, there are many books available on the subject. We have heard there are plans for an inter-island ferry system in the future and this would be an attractive feature that might interest us in doing it sooner.
