General Discussion / Re: Need to transport luggage in Provence
« on: July 16, 2010, 01:43:08 pm »
I will be touring next May with wife and two college age kids. We are looking for a company to transport our luggage from hotel to hotel every other day for about 4 transports total. Does anyone know a company that can provide this service?

This company might be able to help:


I removed yesterday's message, because my friends from Wagner actually went down through Marty today, and CoRd 2 is still out and closed 7 miles south of Marty. I will look for an alternative route next week and report back "from the scene".

Thanks for staying on this. We appreciate it. Look forward to hearing what you find out.

As for Staggers, I would post a photo from our visit but I am sure it would violate the forum's guidelines.  :)

There's something to be said about the power of the imagination. We can all feel free to let ours roam after a comment like that! ;-)

When in Monroeville, assuming they are still there...

Stay in the town community building.  Nicely cooled.  When I was there  in '99 there was a man who kept a journal with the names and home town of all the cyclists who passed through.

Pop into Staggers bar.  Good local color.

Yup, the community building/city park services are still there for cyclists. It is listed as Cyclists' Only Lodging on the Northern Tier 8 and 9 maps. Glad to hear you had a good experience there.

You might want to take a look at the maps from the state of Ohio found here:

Good luck and have a great ride!


Routes / Re: Sierra Cascades south of Lake Isabella?

I now find myself living on an ACA route!  Very cool.  I'm not in the market for the maps, but I was wondering if anyone with a set could tell me if the climb along Hwy 58 goes all the way to Tehachapi, or does the route cut off at Keen and take the Woodford/Tehachapi road--very much preferred?

One MUST take Hwy 58 for about 5 miles (excellent shoulder), but the route really should cut off at Keen for a fine, quiet, super beautiful ascent.  I frequently ride between Tehachapi and Bakersfield, and I've toured a few times from Tehachapi to Lake Isabella and beyond, so I know what I'm talking about.

It just so happens, I have access to a Sierra Cascades map. =)

What you describe is exactly what we have mapped for that area. Heading southbound, the route is on SR 58 for 5.1 miles between Bealeville Rd. and Keene then goes on Woodford Tehachapi Rd. to Red Apple Ave. and beyond through Tehachapi. We have received reports of signage on SR 58 that bicycles are prohibited but believe they were placed there in error. CALTRANS has been alerted.

Great to have you on the route!

You could use Lewis & Clark Section 7 to Astoria:

Or look at what resources Portland has online:

Good luck and have fun!

Also I was thinking of calling WYDOT, what's everyone think of that idea?

Wyoming produces a bicycle map. It's available in pdf format here:

Or you can contact their Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator for info:

Hope this helps,

You might want to check the resources published by New Hampshire for recommended routing:

Have fun!


The Tecolote and South Fork Fires in New Mexico have closed some roads on the between Abiquiu and Cuba. Alternate routing on State Highway 96 and US Highway 550 may be necessary.

For the most recent updates see:


A Fire Information Center has been set up at the Pecos/Las Vegas Ranger District, contact number 505-425-3534.


As I understand it, to comply with the law, we are supposed to dismount and walk our bikes in the street?

Yes, this is our understanding as well.

Thanks, is there a way to get an idea of the departing dates?

The above linked pdf also has the departure dates for 2010. I believe they stay similar from year to year.


Thanks for the heads up on this situation.

More details on reroute:

Westbound: On map 27 in Yankton, ride north on Broadway/US 81. *2.7()Turn left onto SR 50. *47.5()Turn left onto SR 46. 62.6()Continue straight on SR 46 and rejoin route on map 30.

Eastbound: On map 30, at intersection of SR 46 and 388 Ave./CR 21, continue straight on SR 46. *15.1()Turn right onto SR 50. *59.9()Turn right onto Broadway/US 81. 62.6()At intersection of Broadway/US 81 and SR 50, rejoin route in Yankton on map 27.

There appear to be some services on or nearby this routing.


As I interpret it, the trouble is that you're coming in (if coming from the south) on 279, and they have closed their portion of 279 to cyclists.

It's an issue regardless of the direction of travel. There is only one paved road through that area and they are restricting access to it to anyone who wants to cycle through. You may walk your bike only.

More information to be be posted on our blog later this afternoon or early tomorrow morning,

I didn't mean to imply it only affected those coming from the south.  More to clarify for MarthaP why 119 being open doesn't help.

Sorry, missed the one word that should have made that sentiment clear to me.
