Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Idaho Hot Springs route
« on: June 16, 2016, 01:43:08 pm »
I suggest you call the ranger district on the national forest to check conditions over Dollar Hide. The map will have the phone number. I will try to contact a local whom I've corresponded with before to see if he knows how the snow pack is melting.

Routes / Re: St. Louis to Syracuse, NY

Unfortunately, we do not have a route with those specific endpoints. I suggest you take a look at the routes we have mapped to see which parts you could potentially use. You can view an interactive map from the page below to see our network and how it intersects with itself. From the interactive page, you can also download an Overview Map (pdf) to print:
http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/interactive-network-map/

The next step is to get in touch with the bicycle coordinators for the states in which you will be traveling through and need routing. Many have online resources as well as printed materials. Nearly every state publishes a bicycle map of some sort that they will send out for free and the coordinators often have more information they can distribute for no charge as well. And while the maps aren't as detailed as ours, they generally offer suggested roads for cycling through their state. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators:

According to our calculations, there is 14,235 ft. elevation gain on the Main Route.

Going from Astoria, OR to Bar Harbor, ME on that routing would be 4,616 miles. Let me know if you need to know which maps to buy.

Routes / Re: Pacific Coast Route North to South
« on: May 23, 2016, 10:28:11 am »
From the online information about the Pacific Coast Route:
This route can be ridden at any time of the year, but spring and autumn are optimal periods to avoid the heavy tourist traffic in the summer. And be forewarned: winter rains can cause flooding and mud slides and may close roads, especially along the northern California coast. Dense fog can also be a problem during any season. Washington and Oregon normally have dry sunny weather in August and September while the spring season is usually rainy. Due to changing local conditions, it is difficult to predict any major wind patterns, but during summer, strong winds will prevail from north to south.

You also might look at the crazyguyonabike.com website, which has many cycling journals to see if anyone has written about the ECG.

You can follow the Sierra Cascades section 2 and 1 northward along the east side of the Cascades to Twisp/Hwy. 20 to intersect with the Northern Tier. Here is a link. Click on sections 1 and 2 "Detail" in blue to see maps of where the route goes.

And Indyfabz is correct, the prevailing north to south winds only refers to the coast.

SR 230 from turn A to Riverside, WY is under construction. This ten miles has been ripped up and will be repaved. It's rideable but it feels like riding on a rumble strip. The shoulder is ripped up asphalt that has been tamped down with loose and large gravel. Ride carefully and consider hitching a ride in a pickup if possible. The construction project will be completed October 2016.

Routes / Re: where can I buy aca maps.
« on: April 25, 2016, 01:24:53 pm »
There are only 5 shorter routes that are available in a pdf format, which includes the Adirondack Park Loop that was just mentioned. Since you said Pueblo, I'm assuming you are talking about the TransAm maps. With maybe one or two exceptions, the maps aren't sold in cycling shops. If you are interested in TransAmerica digital data, here is a link:

On the Great Divide maps, on each side in the text titled "About Map A" or "About Map B" there is a list of what USFS and BLM maps you will need.

Here is a blog written about planning your own routing. Contacting the state bike/ped coordinator for the states you'll go through is a good idea.
