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.

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.

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.

Slab Creek Rd. and Old Scenic Hwy. 101 are closed from June 25 through August 31, 2012. Use US 101 as a detour.

Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Northern Tier SR46

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. Go here for more information:

Routes / Re: Pacific Coast - 1st leg via San Juans, and then?
« on: June 26, 2012, 05:12:16 pm »
You have several options....
Begin in Vancouver and ride south to Anacortes. From Anacortes, you can catch a ferry to Lopez Island, and from there you can ferry hop to Orcas and San Juan islands. Then you can go back to Anacortes and continue south. You will be riding onto Whidbey Island from there. Our WA Parks section 1 map shows this routing:

The San Juans are very scenic through hilly. If this is the only time you'll be in the area I'd cycle them. Bicyclists pay the passenger fare so it's much cheaper than automobiles. See the WA State ferries pages for more info:

If you don't want to return to Anacortes you can go to Sidney on Vancouver Island and ride south to Victoria (a very interesting city with lots to do). Then you can take another ferry to Port Angeles which is located on the Olympic Peninsula. The alternative to avoid Shelton would be to ride west and south along the Olympic Peninsula from Port Angeles. At Elma you can rejoin the Pacific Coast Route. That section 1 map I mentioned above will show you how to do that.

This might help you make up your mind also:

Please nominate this shop for ACA's Sam Braxton Bicycle Shop award:

You are correct that Hell's Canyon RV Park is located on map 24, not map 23.

I just called the Clearwater Forest Supervisor's office and they said yes, the Jerry Johnson Campground is closed for 2012 and 2013 due to funding cuts. The seasonal comment for Jerry Johnson on the weblink you sent does say it'll be closed for 2012.
