    Thanks Jenn. I used Pittsburg to Cleveland and it worked but I don't want to go to Cleveland but I've gotten other help.


This is a great example of how I think the 200 km restriction would make using this web tool a real hassle if you were going very far. On the other hand, it could be helpful when approaching and traversing urban areas.

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Atlantic Coast Route 2009
« on: April 24, 2009, 02:27:30 pm »
Atlantic Coast Route, Section 5, Maps 53 & 54

There is a wildfire burning in Horry County, South Carolina between Conway and Myrtle Beach. Though no roads on our route are closed at this time, the area around Wampee was evacuated at one time. There is heavy smoke in the area. Due to other major highways being closed, there may be a corresponding increase in traffic on our route.

Call Horry County Emergency Management at 843-915-5150 for more information.

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.

« on: April 20, 2009, 01:59:48 pm »
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.

Hi Radio,

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

Ask away.

« on: February 13, 2009, 10:50:55 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.questoutfitters.com/
http://www.seattlefabrics.com/
http://www.therainshed.com/

Good luck!

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,
