"Adding lanes"? Does that mean it will be safer to ride on 12 from Missoula to Kamiah next summer? Right now the Motorway appears to be the safest route, and that requires a different bike than the road portions.

Adding lanes would be nice, wouldn't it? I'm not entirely sure what the scope of the end result is slated to be on this project. We received notification from a cyclist passing through so only have minimal information at this point.

Does anyone have suggestions for hiring a car shuttle for the Canada portion of the Great Divide route?
Thanks!

There are a couple of Canadian shuttle options available on the Great Divide Shuttle Options pdf available on the page below:

I hope this helps,

I still need a map or maps from Little Rock Arkansas to Bangor Maine

For the section between Little Rock, Arkansas and where ever you'd like to connect to an ACA route, check with the state bicycle and pedestrian coordinator. They usually have good resources about their state. You can get contact information for all states at the website below:

Good luck and have a great ride!

There is road construction occurring on US 12 in Idaho. They are working on shoulders and adding lanes. This pertains to Maps 30 & 31 from Kooskia to Lowell. Please ride with caution through this area.

Check the Idaho Department of Transportation website for updates:

Check out the pdf maps available on these pages for some guidance.

Washington DOT, choose #6 - East Central:

Idaho DOT, choose "Shoulder width map" about the middle of the page:

Thanks for posting what looks like an interesting option for the Northern Tier route. I'm going to file it for future reference. Do you know anything about services available outside of camping? Grocery stores, service stations, restaurants?

The map route is as follows : Florence to Noti along the 126, then via Crow to Eugene.
The Gps route is as follows : Florence to Mapelton along the 126, then along the 36 via Fern Ridge lake to Eugene.

Aha, I see what happened. It would appear that you have an older version of the map. The GPS routing is the current routing for the BC-1511-08 version map. The TAAboutV00x document that came with your GPS download will tell you what version of the maps that the files are keyed to.

Hi Shane,

I've just recieved the first 3 parts of the Transam maps. And now I've also downloaded the GPs waypoints, but it seems that the gps route between Florence and Eugene is largly diffrent to the map. So not only have I bought a map for only one leg but it also differs from the Gps information.

The Florence to Eugene section of the TransAm is what we call an Alternate, rather than the Main Route. This information is also included in the GPS waypoints you downloaded. The waypoints and route for the alternate begin with J3. Routing between Florence and Eugene has been stable for a few years now so the data and the maps should match each other.

I hope this helps, (unless, of course, I've completely misunderstood your issue, let me know if you need something further)
