Routes / Re: Sierra Cascade Route
« on: January 05, 2010, 09:12:16 am »
Hi all,

Just back from a few days off. The current target date for the Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route maps to be available for purchase is the first week of April. This project is our main priority right now. I am working on a webpage with more information about the route. I will post here to let you know when that is up.

Regarding Bil Paul's book, though the route is based on a lot of his routing, it is not always the same. As far as I know, Bil is not planning to update/reprint the book.

Hi Kathy,

If they email me, I hope they say "Salmon River" in the subject line, so I won't think it is junk mail and delete it.

I believe they will email me the info and I'll post it here for you.

I'm guessing that the Salmon River they refer to is the one in Idaho.  So I'm beginning to gather some data in that area.
Do you know?  Is that the right state?

Yes, I understand that the area they rode was in Idaho.

Somehow I didn't seem to get the email that I expected from the forum pgm that would let me know someone had replied.
Should I still expect such an email or has the forum changed.

Did you click on Notify at the top right of the thread/discussion? I think you have to do that in order to receive an email telling you there has been activity in your discussion.

I hope this helps.

I want to hit yellowstone and/or tetons if a lack of snow allows it (yellowstone plows its roads in April, does that mean they are bike-able in May?) 

Everything you need to know about cycling through Yellowstone in the spring can be found at the National Park Service website below:

I hope that helps.

Hi mugs,

Welcome to bicycle touring! Have you seen this article on our site specifically about ultra light bicycle touring?

http://www.adventurecycling.org/features/ultralight.cfm

There is also a link in the upper right corner for a review of ultra light gear. Check it out, too.

For planning your Idaho adventure, you might want to check the Idaho Department of Transportation website. They have some resources there including a map that shows shoulder widths that you can use as a guide.

Good luck and have fun!

Coach,

Definitely check out the Northern Tier Route. Parts of it might work well for you depending on what you are looking for.

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

Also, you can reach the Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinators for North Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota on the page listed below as well as links to their web page. Some have great info right on their site for touring recommendations.

Good luck and have fun!

For some general information, try going to http://www.weather.com and put in your destination in the upper left search box. Once the page reloads, scroll down to the 36 hour forecast you'll see a tab labeled Averages. Click on that and it will display the monthly high and low temperature and precipitation averages for your chosen location.

Hi Kathy,

I've been in touch with Kathy and Roger. They are a bit busy at the moment but intend to put together something about their route for me to pass on to you.

From the NPS website, Glacier Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I ride my bicycle on the Going-to-the Sun Road?
Yes, but there are some exceptions. From June 15 through Labor Day, the following sections of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are closed to bicycle use between 11a.m. and 4 p.m.:

    * From Apgar turnoff (at the south end of Lake McDonald) to Sprague Creek Campground
    * Eastbound from Logan Creek to Logan Pass.

Due to ongoing road rehabilitation on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, portions of the roadbed may not be paved. Bicyclists should use caution riding on gravel portions of the road.

Also, be sure to check out the plans for road construction on Going-to-the-Sun. They may influence your itinerary.

Have a great trip!

Hi Ed,

First, Canada is part of the North American continent.  :) Second, you will find information for areas outside of that geographical area, too, on this forum. Be sure to check the appropriate Regional Discussion Area. And third, I've got a couple of links for you.

This one is for the Route Verte in Quebec, www.RouteVerte.com.
This one is for a system ranging across the entire country. It is not complete but may be enough to get you started, www.TcTrail.ca.

Have fun!

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions as to how to best connect with the ST - I have the Florida Connector map and would prefer not going too far east.  I plan to camp and stay in motels as well, whatever feels good, am a 60 yr.old female travelling alone and fairly light, and like to ride anywhere between 60 to 90 miles per day. 

You might want to check the map selection found at the Florida Department of Transportation. If you don't see what you need, give the coordinator a call. They will know their state resources the best.

Hi Richard,

I don't know the answer to your question about the Youghiogheny Trail but I wondered if you had seen Pennsylvania Route S. It might be helpful to you in planning your tour.

Sounds like you are off to a good start in the planning department for this one! Be sure to let us know which trip you took and how it goes. We regularly get requests for good, kid friendly tour suggestions. It would be nice to have one in the books from a family who rode one recently.

.Jennifer.
