I couldn't find one that appeared to map coast-to-coast as one cohesive trip.The ACA has three coast-to-coast routes: the TransAm, the Northern Tier and the Southern Tier. Each of these routes has some variations. An extremely popular route is to start on the TransAm in Yorktown, Virginia and switch to the Western Express in Pueblo, Colorado, finishing in San Franscisco. This TransAm variation is so popular that the ACA has even packaged up the set of maps you need for it.
You can do less on a day with rain and/or headwinds and more if the conditions are favorable.I'm a great fan of doing 40-mile days into a headwind and 100-mile days with a good tailwind. Don't fight the weather--leverage it. But I'll usually keep riding if it's raining because riding in the rain can be quite enjoyable and sitting around in the rain can be quite boring.
if you have 2 people riding the second set makes for for a great inexpensive copy for your partner.Funny story about that. When I did the TransAm, I was using 2010 maps. My riding companions were using 1984 maps that they got for free. Between Booneville and Berea in Kentucky, I got a bit ahead of them, so I stopped to wait ... and wait and wait. They never showed. Their maps took them on a different route and I didn't see them again until the end of the day. Also, they rode 10 more miles than I did.
