Hi,

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 : http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/US97A/NWenatcheeSlope/.

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.

Tony,

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

http://www.dot.state.pa.us/BIKE/WEB/tour_routes.htm

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

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

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

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

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

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!

.Jennifer.

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.

This article (though perhaps a little dated) might be a good way to offer some perspective to worried friends and family:

You should be able to edit your post using the Modify Message link in the upper right of your message.

Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

Yes, it is there.  Missed it.

Ah, can I blame my rare eye condition?  Really, I do have one.  Think some characters here are wrong but idiopathic juxta or parafoveal telangiectasis. 

Actually, I think I didn't notice it because it is just small words.  I also run a couple SMF forums and I think mine stand out better.  I attached a snapshot of that in case you guys are interested.  I thought this was a standard option but maybe I installed something.




I like that image. You might want to send your suggestion to jsieber since he is the one who is responsible for changes like that.

Jennifer,

Do you know if a way point file will be available to complement the maps for this route when the maps are released? 

There will be gps waypoints for this route. We will post them as close to the release date of the maps as possible.

Had to reply to myself for this as it looks like the moderators have editing your own post turned off.

Though it sounds like this might not be detailed enough on it's own for following you on your ride, you could start with the network map we have available as a pdf (at no cost!) on the Routes & Mapping page.

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

Click on Map of All ACA Routes, first line after Adventure Cycling Maps in the upper right of the page.

Hi,

Here is what it says on our website about "supported" tours:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/tours/tourdescription.cfm?id=999902&menu=ev&t=ev10

The supported trips can vary in the kind of support offered based on a variety of factors. Usually these are spelled out in the route description. You may need to read the tour description online to get the best picture since the printed book has limited space. And, of course, if you have questions, be sure to give the Tours department a call or drop them an email.

Routes / Re: Underground Railway why ...
« on: February 01, 2010, 06:03:35 pm »
Hi Tony,

We got in touch with the researcher for this route and this is his response to going off the bike trail/path:

Quote
The reason(s) that the current maps route riders to Clifton and later
re-join the bike path in S Charleston is to route people past the front door
of The National Afro American Museum and Cultural Center in Wilberforce.
The route also takes people closer to Massies Creek Cemetery where Martin
Delany is buried.  Martin DeLany is known as the father of Black
Nationalism, he was active n the URR, was the first African American officer
in the US army, met with Lincoln in the White House and shared a strategy
for winning the war.  The original marker for his grave was small and had
his name misspelled.  The museum raised money for a more appropriate maker
for a person of his stature and they are very proud of the project. Another
reason for the current routing is that it takes people right through the
campuses of two HBCU's Wilberforce University and Central State University.
Both have supported riders using the route.

From a historical perspective I like the current routing.  From a pure
cycling perspective of getting from point A to point B staying on the path
would make more sense.  So those are the trade-offs.

I suspected it was a historical reason, but it's always nice to have confirmation.

.Jennifer.
