Routes / Re: Riding on Interstates
« on: September 15, 2009, 10:01:18 am »
Does anyone have a comprehensive list of which Interstates or portions of Interstates allow cyclists?  I am particularly interested in I-40 through AZ, NM, TX, OK, Kansas and MO.  Thanks

I wish there was such a list! (If anyone knows of one, please feel free to post it.) I've got a couple of generic links I'll give you:

http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bikeped/freeways.htm
http://www.bikeleague.org/action/bikelaws/state_laws.php

Another tack to take is to contact the bicycle/pedestrian coordinator for the states you want to travel through and ask them. They will have the best information for their state. The list of all of them are here:

Good luck and have a great ride.

Have you looked at this site:

http://www.bicyclenevada.com/

It is part of the Nevada Department of Transportation. If you don't see what you are looking for, contact information is also listed there.

Any idea when "the list" will come out?

From what I can tell, it isnt' clear when "the list" will come out. We're keeping an eye on the situation though. Watch the following site for developments and ways to communicate to California. They even have opportunities for out-of-staters to share their thoughts.

If you have the BC-1511-08 version of the map (check for the number in the lower left corner of the cover), you will find directions to the Harbor Vista Park in the Service Directory. They are supposed to have good access to the ocean for your wheel dipping.

Let's please keep this discussion on the original poster's question: where to find camping on the Pacific Coast Route. It's fine to note that come state campgrounds may be closing or fees may be increasing, these are general knowledge pieces of information, but please keep the political commentary to Forums more suited to the topic.

Thank you,

Hi Kate,

I'm sorry to hear you are disappointed with the maps you've purchased. Much of the comments to this thread thus far are on the money as far as the considerations we take into account with the creation of our maps. These maps have always been this size and they are designed for use in handlebar bags. We do our best to keep the type size as large as possible. The "rule" is to never go smaller than a 6 pt type. Very occasionally we have to break that rule. I have heard of cyclists making enlarged copies of the narrative instructions to carry with them.

A GPS unit might be a good supplement for you. Be sure to take a look at the GPS Discussion if you have questions about good units to consider.

Good luck and happy planning,
.Jennifer.

Hi George,

You might also want to post a query in the Regional Discussion area for the Great Lakes to connect with people in your area:

Have fun!

Hi Ben,

I've made it to Portland and would like to cycle down the Pacific Coast from here. Since I have to hurry a bit I want to start at the coast. What is the best way to get there with a bike? Amtrak, Greyhound, Hitchhiking?

Best way to get from Portland to the coast? Ride!  :)

Here is a page that offers three route options:

Enjoy your ride,

Hi,

The Florida Department of Transportation has some cycling maps listed here: http://www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/ped_bike/touringInfo/ped_bike_touringInfo_maps.shtm.

Also, you might contact the Florida Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for suggestions.

« on: August 10, 2009, 05:25:45 am »
I live in Central Arkansas and noticed a bike route going through Little Rock towards the East- Route 80. Where do I get details on exactly where this route is and what towns it goes through?

I would start with looking at the suitability map found on this page: http://www.arkansashighways.com/planning_research/statewide_planning/bicycle_pedestrian_planning/bicycle_pedestrian_planning.aspx

And then for further information, contact the Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for Arkansas. This info is also available on the above page.

Good luck!

Hi Lauren,

A good place to start looking at roads and possible routes is at the Department of Transportation websites for each of the states you'd like to pass through. Some states have great info available online for free even. All states have a Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator you can talk to as well. Contact information can be found at this site: http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm. Feel free to post any further questions here or to ask for advice about specific routing you're considering.

Good luck and have fun. Be sure to report back when you've returned home and let us know how it went.

.Jennifer.
