GPS Discussion / Re: delorme gps/spot unit
« on: February 24, 2011, 09:39:59 am »
The AC routes were easy to load, not so easy to follow (why can't they align the segments with the maps??).

Can you clarify your question? In creating sample GPS Routes we attempted to locate a waypoint at or near matchlines and end them there so they would align with the paper map panels. It wasn't always feasible. Sometimes more than one panel could be covered in a Route, other times it took two Routes to cover one panel. Or maybe you're talking about a different aspect...

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Is google an appropriate source for route planning if there is no ACA map to get me west through southern NV and CA?

You might also want to check the resources that both Nevada and California have available online for some routing suggestions. If you don't find what you are looking for, call and talk to someone in their Bicycle and Pedestrian offices. They know their roads and routes better than anyone.

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.

http://www.azbikeped.org/

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

Hi,

I just found this information on the Oregon Coast Bike Route map (which can be downloaded here: http://www.portlandonline.com/transportation/index.cfm?c=34809&):

Quote
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.

Underground Railroad / Re: Detroit Spur?
« on: January 03, 2011, 08:29:11 am »
Hi,

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.

Bicycle Route 66 / Welcome to Bicycle Route 66!
« on: December 22, 2010, 02:33:26 pm »
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:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/news/20101122.cfm?use=web

And these two blog posts:

http://blog.adventurecycling.org/2010/11/bicycling-mother-road.html
http://blog.adventurecycling.org/2010/12/bike-route-66-continued.html

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.

.Jennifer.
