State Hwy. 14 east of Cedar City is closed due to a landslide and the clearing/reconstruction will extend into the summer of 2012 so there's a detour to get around the closure. See this link for updates:,V:3571
Eastbound, from the intersection of Center St./SR 14 and Main St./SR 130 in Cedar City, head north on Main St./SR 130. At 4.1 mi., turn right onto Old US Hwy. 91. At 12.1 mi., cross I-15 and enter town of Summit (no services). Stay on Old US Hwy. 91. At 19.4 mi., enter Parowan (all services) and turn right onto E 200 S/SR 143. Begin climb. At 30.8 enter Brian Head (lodging and restaurant). At 35.3 mi., rejoin route at the intersection of SR 143 and SR 148. The Cedar Breaks Visitor Center is 4.7 mi. S. from this point.

ACA uses the Northern Tier + North Lakes + Lake Erie Connector routing because feedback from leaders and participants on past trips were saying they got tired of all the farms and cornfields on the traditional Northern Tier. The mileage is about the same.

We are in the process of making major changes on both the Northern Tier and Lewis & Clark routes and remapping a new route through North Dakota to avoid Williston and the area between Williston and Minot. The new Northern Tier section3 and 4 maps will be available in early May and the new Lewis & Clark section 3 and 4 maps will be available in late June.

Further clarification....
The addenda you get from ACA online or through the store will match the map version that you have. If a new map has been printed since you purchased your map there will possibly be an addenda for it. So you will have to get the most current addenda to match your map plus the newest map addenda.

If this is still confusing please call me. Maybe it will make more sense if we talk. 800-755-2453x218.

I can't answer that because I don't know. It's possible that there may be updates. I guess I can think of a situation where a bike shop moved to a new address and we noted it, then several months later it was sold and it now has a new name. So we would update the addenda with the new info. But I can't say yes, the addenda will change from what you presently have.

Be sure to check out the ferry schedule and prices if you plan to use it.

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.

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 and look for the map that overlays ACA routes in the U.S. to see where you might find overnights.

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.

From Hachita take Hwy. 9 east through Columbus to El Paso. It's about 120 miles.

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:
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".
