Thanks so much for the awesome feedback everyone! We are going to be leaving the last week in June and would actually have a 10 weeks to enjoy the ride. The main thing motivating us to do the Western Express is this guys journal...Why not just ask Wayne directly. Use the Guestbook section of the journal. Wayne is a good guy and I would be surprised if he didn't answer your question. Just be prepared for an answer you don't want to hear.
we would try to take a bunch of side trips to the parks like he did!
were just concerned that it would be too hot to enjoy and opinions?
The mapping varies considerable by state.
Federal highway legislation for the past 20 years has required multi-modal planning.
That means that states have included bicycle/pedestrian use in their DOTs.
(Sometimes that is 10% a a single person's job description - FWIW)
The results reflect as much.
Oregon's bike map is super - has been since well before the federal mandate.
Arizona's is iffy - their criteria for traffic volume is too high.
Also, states often only consider state highways -
when county roads are nearby which are far preferable.
(Except that the maps are usually free)
