I just gave it a shot using your endpoints (Pittsburgh and Sandusky) and got a message that said it could not compute a trip over 200 km. When I changed Sandusky to Erie, PA, it worked just fine. Oddly enough though, that route came out to 201 km...

I just got off of the phone with Paul Douglas.
1st. what a super nice guy
2nd. he was very helpful I personally feel he went out of his way to assist me like he did

when I get down to Tx. I'm going to call him and try to invite him out for a beer (on me)

Yea! I'm glad you were able to connect with him and get some assistance. When you return, I'm sure other cyclists would like to know your route and how it worked out.

yes it helps allot and thank you now I have another question for you.
which of the southern tier routes should I take to get me close to dallas tx. and do you have a route that will get me into dallas itself?

Lee

Hi Lee,

Unfortunately, I don't have any tried and true suggestions for you on the routing you are looking for. Looking at the map, I would start to head north somewhere between St. Francisville, LA and Navasota, TX. Contact the Bike/Pedestrian Coordinator for those states for routing suggestions.
This time of year you might need to call them rather than email.

Also, I just came across this map for Louisiana, check out the one called "Cajun Country": http://www.dotd.la.gov/email.asp?pre=Bicycle%20Trails%20Map%20Request

In Texas, once you've determined what counties you intend to travel through, you can download county maps from the Texas DOT here: http://www.txdot.gov/travel/county_grid_search.htm

I hope this helps.

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / PLEASE READ FIRST
« on: April 20, 2009, 10:59:48 am »
The purpose of this discussion is to help cyclists on the road stay abreast of the fast changing, short term situations due to seasonal fires, floods and other weather-related conditions as well as construction projects when possible. For information on longer term road closures and service information, see our Addenda page at http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/addenda.cfm.

When you begin a new topic, please include the route name, section number (where applicable) and year in the subject line, eg. TransAmerica Section 3 2009, Great Divide Section 2 2009, Green Mountains Loop 2009. Also include the map panel number/name where applicable, eg. TransAmerica Section 3, map panel 28, Atlantic Coast Section 2, New York City Spur A.

If you have additional information pertaining to a route already listed, please 'Reply' to that posting to add your comments.

Thank you.

Hi,

The Northern Tier Route Section 9 goes through Cleveland. If you follow it eastbound, you will connect with the Underground Railroad Route Section 4 in Ashtabula, OH to begin your journey south.

I hope that helps.

Hi,

I suggest contacting one of these two people for information about cycling in Texas. They would have the best suggestions outside of other cyclists who have actually traveled the roads.

Hi,

If you go to the Utah Cliffs page in the Routes & Mapping section, I think you'll find the information you are looking for.

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

Once you get this page, click on 'More' at the end of the first paragraph. The equipment section is near the end.

I hope this helps,

I would like to know where to post questions about using the new forums.
Thanks,

Hi Radio,

This is definitely a good place to ask questions about the Forum itself.

Ask away.

« on: February 13, 2009, 08:50:55 am »
Hi John,

You might also try finding a tailor or seamstress in your area who could make you new covers. Simply by looking at what you have, they should be able to replicate them. I've seen outdoor fabrics available at these sites online (no affiliation whatsoever):

http://www.seattlefabrics.com/
http://www.therainshed.com/

Good luck!

Hey Scott,

I looked into this situation for you and this is what I found out:

If you are interested in obtaining permission to use these photos, please contact Adventure Cycling’s Publications Director Mike Deme at 406-721-1776 x 222 or editor AT adventurecycling.org.

I hope this helps.

Hi Dave,

Where else do you see a commercial posting. I didn't see it in a quick perusal. Maybe another moderator has already deleted it.

Thanks,

Hi Gramps,

Nope, I don't expect there to be any changes to those GPS files in the next few months. I think you're good to go ahead and download 'em.

Have a great ride!

GPS Discussion / GPS Datasets Updates
« on: February 27, 2006, 08:58:05 am »
Hello Gramps and Fred,

The most current GPS files for all three routes mentioned are available for download on the ACA website. They should be up-to-date with the maps currently being sold.

To be certain, your numbers should match what is listed below:

Lake Erie Connector:
LE01v004 from map #BC-1914 05L; released 11/05

Northern Tier:
NT01v004 from map #BC-1121 05L; released 11/05
NT02v004 from map #BC-1122 05L; released 11/05
NT03v003 from map #BC-1123 01L; released 04/04
NT07v003 from map #BC-1303 03L; released 04/04
NT08v003 from map #BC-1101 01L; released 04/04
NT09v004 from map #BC-1102 05L; released 11/05
NT10v004 from map #BC-1103 05L; released 11/05
NT11v003 from map #BC-1104 02L; released 04/04

North Lakes:
NL01v003 from map #BC-1911 05L; released 11/05
NL02v003 from map #BC-1912 05L; released 11/05
NL03v003 from map #BC-1913 05L; released 11/05


If your maps are no more than one version older than these, I'd guess that you will still be ok as MOST of the changes are service related rather than route related.

I hope that helps,
.Jennifer.
