Routes / Re: Transam East to West 2012 Advice Sought
« on: December 02, 2011, 04:00:29 pm »
Contact the Richmond bike shops listed on the map; if they can't do it ask if they can recommend another bike shop. Or google "Richmond, VA bike shops" and find one close to the airport. You could also ask the bike shop if there is a hotel nearby.

Routes / Re: Addendums
« on: December 02, 2011, 12:23:11 pm »
Just before you leave on your trip go to the following link and you will be able to print the most current addenda for your maps. We update addenda every month, though it is possible that not every map's addendum will have changed. If you look at the addenda you received you will see a date in parentheses (for example, Oct 2011) for each map panel entry. If your copy shows (Aug 2011) and the one online is (Oct 2011) that means it has been updated. That's the way you can tell if an entry has been added since you received your maps a few months ago.

If you don't have access to a computer you can call us and we will mail you the current addenda for your maps.

You can always check the Crazy Guy On A Bike website to see if anyone has written a journal about a specific route.

Maybe you have already done this but have you tried calling the campgrounds listed on the map and asking if they have a cabin to rent? Sometimes they do. Also, about 4 mi. N. of Perkinston is a town called Wiggins. It looks like there's a motel:
Hampton Inn & Suites Hotel
1121 East Frontage Drive, Wiggins, MS 39577
(601) 528-5255

For an answer to your #2 question see the topic "Southern Tier from early January to early March" and the post by Lingen. And you can go to Warmshowers.org and look for the map that overlays ACA routes in the U.S. to see where you might find overnights.

Routes / Re: Natchez Trace Maps

ACA's Great Rivers South map sections 2 and 3 shows routing on the Natchez Trace with the exception of the northernmost 40 miles. You could start in Nashville and then at about mile 40 on the Trace you can use these maps for the remainder of the Trace to Natchez.

There is also a shuttle from SeaTac to Anacortes. Check to see if they take bicycles.

ACA's Pacific Coast Route #1 map does show routing from Bremerton northward to Anacortes. From downtown Seattle you can take the Bremerton Ferry and follow the route north. Campgrounds are noted on the map.

Hazelmere RV Park is located southwest of Langley close to the border: http://www.hazelmere.ca/
I checked Google Earth and it shows about 6 motels in Langley. If you type "Langley, BC motels" into Google it brings up a selection, aslo when you search "Langley, BC bed and breakfasts".

Routes / Re: Sleeping Bag Question on Pacific Coast Route

A summer bag should be warm enough but consider taking along a silk liner. Very lightweight but adds warmth if you need it. I love mine.

The newest version (2011) of the map shows the correct way to avoid the airport runway north of Del Norte which is accessible by vehicle. This re-route is also mentioned on the 2009 addenda.

No, ACA doesn't keep any records for speedy TransAm crossings.

Look at the online journal site www.crazyguyonabike.com to see if anyone has written about their trip on the Underground Railroad.

The St. Francisville ferry has been shut down and the new Audubon bridge southeast of the ferry opened on May 5th. It is located about 3.4 mi. downriver from the ferry location. You do not need to go into St. Francisville to reach the bridge - the access is on US 61. We do not yet have directions on how to reach the bridge, please ask locally.

The Morganza Spillway was opened on May 14 to divert the Mississippi River floodwaters away from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. It is located just northwest of the town of Morganza on Section 5 map 78. At this time the road over the Spillway remains open. Call the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff to get up-to-date information.
