Routes / Re: Utah cliffs route
« on: November 21, 2012, 10:53:26 am »
Hi:
All of our routes have mileage information and more about the route itself on our website. You can go to this link for the Utah Cliffs Loop: http://adventurecycling.org/routes/utahcliffsloop.cfm

Mid-April is most likely too early to ride that loop. Some of the roads are at high elevation and will still be closed by snow. I wouldn't recommend it before early to mid-June, depending on what kind of snow year it is.

On the Southern Tier section 5 map (which includes a spur into Baton Rouge), in the Riding Conditions text there is information on who to contact to get routing into New Orleans.

Routes / Re: Eureka MT. to Helena, MT. days?
« on: November 15, 2012, 01:40:31 pm »
It's 360 miles from Eureka to Helena on the Great Divide. If you can ride 40 mi./day on a loaded mtn. bike or pulling a trailer it'll take 9 days. You might want to have a rest day in there somewhere. But you should also plan on where your overnights will be so that will affect your daily mileage. There's 7 passes to go over and the route is fairly hilly so I would suggest underestimating your mileage instead of overestimating.

You can check with the Tennessee bike/pedestrian coordinator to see if he can suggest anything. Here's a link to get contact info:

Hi AnnieBikes!
I appreciate what Ben wrote about the route - it's great to hear from folks who have ridden it. I plan to incorporate some of his comments into our online description of the route.

Routes / Emergencies on paved rail-trails??
« on: September 24, 2012, 04:08:59 pm »
Has anyone had an emergency on a paved rail-trail where you had to get an ambulance to come pick up the injured person? Can ambulances or other vehicles drive on rail-trails? We had this question from someone and I'm curious to find out if anyone has dealt with this issue.

Routes / Re: ACA Denali route?
« on: August 13, 2012, 05:51:12 pm »
Even though we run a tour in Alaska, we don't provide the tour with a route map that ACA has produced. Fred and indyfabr are correct about allocating resources and with all we have to do it's not cost effective to produce a map for 14 cyclists which is offered every other year.

No, we don't have published maps for the trip that Tours offers. Alaska publishes a book/ebook/app called the Milepost, which is updated yearly and has info about services along all the Alaska highways which should be helpful in planning.

Routes / Re: Lewis and Clark on the go
« on: July 11, 2012, 10:51:09 am »
If there is a very limited choice of indoor lodging you might want to call them while you're still at home to see what they say. Occasionally there will be events occurring in a town where all the motels will be sold out and that can put a crimp in your plans. With most motels/hotels you can make a reservation, and if you realize you can't get there, you can cancel up to 24 hours ahead without being charged. But you should check on the cancellation policy to be sure of that.

Yes, you should still assume the same. We have not heard of any lodging options.

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Northern Tier SR46
« on: June 27, 2012, 10:38:19 am »
FYI - as of spring 2012 we have changed the Northern Tier #4 map so it doesn't use this routing anymore. There are new maps available to purchase. The route was modified to avoid the gas and oil boom occurring in northwest North Dakota centered around Williston.
