Thanks Reed and Pat! Send me a PM or email with your contact information and I'll get your names added to our list of possible support people.


You might also want to take a look at the Florida county maps and other resources on their DOT Bicycle and Pedestrian pages:

Good luck and have a great trip!

Be sure to check the resources Colorado DOT has posted on their site for information on routing.


GPS Discussion / Re: UGRR Section T02150 and Great Rivers D02280
« on: March 03, 2011, 09:03:13 am »
Never mind....after a really close review of a handful of wps i have discovered that if a waypoint is "on top" of another road i.e a bridge or overpass...the software didnt allways get it where it was intended....i.e itwas supposed to be on the "bottom" recalulate a new route..

Aha, glad there was a reason things looked askew to you!


I am planning a Mobile Al to Springfield Mo(or St. Louis) in May 2011.  I overlaid sections the UGRR (T02150)and GR (D02280) and one of intersections confuses me.

Is there a reason that the two routes  don’t share the same roads between WP T020Z0/D02850 and T020T0/D028C0?

From what I can tell, between the two waypoints you indicate, the routes are both the same - the Natchez Trace Parkway. The waypoints that were created to show this were done by two different people and as such different selections were made.

I hope that helps.


Hi Nicolas!

If it works for you, Monroeville is very welcoming of cyclists.  There is an air conditioned community center where you can spend the night.

Yes! Thanks for promoting Monroeville, one of our longest standing Cyclists' Only Lodging options. You can read more about them in a blog post:

You might want to check Charlie Myer's blog and look into getting his book. I've read rave reviews of it as a resource. I think he also reads these forums now and then.

Good luck and let us know how it went.

I suppose it depends on what you're looking to experience. In the timeframe you mention, it will require 100 mile days on end, tough to do but even more so as the daylight will be getting shorter at that point. And you won't get to experience much off the bike or have any days for rest, checking out something intriguing, etc. You might want to consider starting somewhere mid-way across like Austin, Texas, or another route entirely. You could do much of the Pacific Coast in that time, see a lot of Florida (including the Keys). I'm others have suggestions, too.

Have fun with the planning!


the bridge repairs are done and route is open.  i live here.

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.
