Routes / Re: cross-country WITHOUT ACA Maps

Hi,

For information about bicycle travel in Nebraska, have you seen their Department of Transportation website:

http://www.dor.state.ne.us/info/index.htm#bikeinfo

For any other states you need information for, contact information is available here:

http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm

I hope this helps you.

Very generally speaking, bicycles may use the interstate highway system for travel when they are outside of urban areas and no other alternatives exist. The conditions aren't always pleasant: high speed traffic, debris covered shoulders, rumble strips are all common. You can check with the states you are concerned about through the contacts listed on the page below:

http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm

I hope this helps.

You might want to check the resources at MassBike to get you to the MA/NY border.

Routes / Re: Help!! Need Route from Buffalo to Indy...
« on: May 10, 2010, 08:30:02 am »
Have you looked at our Route Network map? You can download it from the main Routes & Maps page:

Go to http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/greatdivide.cfm then click on Map of All ACA Routes.

The Northern Tier (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/northerntier.cfm) will get you to Indiana from Buffalo, NY. If you need further routing in Indiana, contact their bicycle/pedestrian coordinator through the information at the bottom of their page: http://www.in.gov/indot/2957.htm.

Have a great ride.

Have you checked out the options provided on the Great Divide Shuttle Options pdf available for download on the Great Divide page?

I hope this helps.

However, after the costs of my flight and buying the gear I'll need I'd like to keep my travelling expenses below $50 a day.  Does that sound do-able including perhaps a camp site with showers?  On that topic, how much do US campsites cost on average for cyclists.

Sounds doable. You might want to read the Bike Touring 101 article on our How To page (http://www.adventurecycling.org/features/howto.cfm) for other tips and thoughts on cost.

Hi BeardedBiker!

You have lots of options for cycling in the area from Missoula to Glacier NP. Visit Montana has some suggestions on this page:

http://www.visitmt.com/virtualvisitor/biking/.

It has also been said that some of the best parts of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route are in the northern part of Montana. Check out the details about the GDMBR here:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/greatdivide.cfm

and Section #1 in particular:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/store/index.cfm/product/14_11/great-divide-mountain-bike-route-section-1.cfm

You are certainly welcome to stop by the office while you are in town. We are open Monday-Friday, 8-5 and some Saturdays in the summer beginning June 26, 9-1.

Another good resource for route finding is each state's Department of Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian program. You can find info for Indiana here: http://www.in.gov/indot/2957.htm and Ohio here: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/Divisions/TransSysDev/MultiModalPlanning/bicycle/Pages/default.aspx.

Hi David,

Have you bought the TransAm maps yet? Bike shops are one of the services we show in the Service Directory for each route. Unfortunately, we don't know of any bike shops in Yorktown. It looks like there are a few in nearby Williamsburg.

I hope this helps.

Rocky Mountain / Re: utah cliffs loop
« on: April 20, 2010, 04:21:17 pm »
Hi,

so, i ended up getting the map. however, it looks like the route would be much more enjoyable if the route was reversed. the climbs would be spread out more...

I looked into this and here's what the route researcher had to say:

The route was [planned this direction] so that the big elevation gain comes on pavement (east on 14 from Cedar City), and the big elevation
loss comes on gravel/dirt (Navajo Lake down the North Fork of the Virgin River). This is a great downhill, but I think it would be quite a gruelling uphill.

Is there any way to get reverse route directions?

At this time, the route narratives are not written/available for the reverse direction.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Have you read the article we have online from Paula Holmes-Eber? It might be a good place to start for information.

Good luck!

General Discussion / Re: The Cookie Lady - gone?
« on: April 02, 2010, 12:32:14 pm »
Hi all,

Good news! Things with the Cookie Lady are the same as BikingBis (http://www.bikingbis.com/blog/_archives/2010/3/31/4493264.html) and I (http://blog.adventurecycling.org/2010/03/cookie-lady-update.html) reported. June is still planning to open the Bike House later this spring and welcome visitors. From what I understand, they just haven't made it happen quite yet. The picnic table and bicycle will return, hopefully within the next 30 days or so.

I hope that eases your minds.

Routes / Re: routes are these the same???

The MRT follows the Mississippi River pretty closely, our Great Rivers Route really doesn't. We also follow the Ohio River and the Natchez Trace for a long stretch. For a more detailed description, see this page:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/greatrivers.cfm?pg=more

I hope that helps.
