Another good resource for route finding is each state's Department of Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian program. You can find info for Indiana here: and Ohio here:


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.

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.

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

Good luck!

Hi all,

Good news! Things with the Cookie Lady are the same as BikingBis ( and I ( 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.

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:

I hope that helps.

Hi Ron,

The two routes are probably the same or similar in parts but not in whole. If you want to do the Mississippi River Trail, I suggest looking at the maps and guidebooks available at their site:

Have a great ride.

This is news to us at the moment as well. We're looking into it and will reply when we know more.


A portion of US 97A near Wenatchee, Washington will be closed for three, four day stretches:
March 22-25
April 12-15
May 10-13

If you are traveling through here on those dates, you will have to detour on US 97 to SR 150 to Chelan to rejoin the route. There are no services on this detour.

To stay up-to-date on the situation, go to :


I would guess in April the winds won't be as bad as in the summer. However, a lot of people do the Pacific Coast Route north to south because this puts you on the ocean side of the road where the view is best - you don't have to look at it across the road and traffic.

You might want to check Pennsylvania Route A. It will get you as close as Coraopolis.

From there you can continue on Neville Rd. along the river, cross at McKees Rock and use the North Shore Trail into town.


Routes / Re: ohio to grand canyon routes. any ideas?

You probably want to start by reading articles from our How To pages:

Have you looked at our route network? Depending on where you want to travel, you could piece together a tour with our maps.

Be sure to download the Map of All ACA Routes pdf for a clear view of where routes intersect with one another.

As you discover more about where you want to travel, ask more questions.

Have fun!

If I am not mistaken, an sotry written by a duo who cycled come of it appeared in "Adventure Cyclist" magazine within the last year.

This is true. There is an article by Chuck Haney in the September/November 2009 Adventure Cyclist. Unfortunately, it is not showing up in our article archive at the moment. I'm tracking it down.

Found it. Features from the September/November issue are available on the main Adventure Cyclist page. It is the second article listed, BC Ballast.

I hope it helps.
