Routes / Re: MN to CA
« on: July 23, 2009, 08:21:29 am »
My other question is are all the routes (just ordered first route map tonight) on paved roads/trails?  It seems like every picture they show are cyclists on dirt roads.  My goal is to travel this route and stay on paved roads. 

I would say that 98% (or better) of our routing, other than the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, is on paved roads or trails. Sometimes the route is on a crushed limestone or gravel path and occasionally, there is an unavoidable 0.5 mi. to 2 mi. of gravel road. On the Lewis & Clark route, there are several gravel options.

I hope that helps.

The shoulder-width map on the page below might be helpful in your planning:

Routes / Re: Bike Shop Update for Williston, ND
« on: July 20, 2009, 11:07:12 am »
Hi Cinzia,

Thanks for the info on Williston. Information like this generally lives on our addenda. It looks we had part of it already in-house and the rest will be handled shortly.

We appreciate the update, thanks again.

"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:

Midwest / Re: North Dakota route

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?
