FYI... Going from Banff to Radium Hot Springs and down to the border at Roosville is mapped on the Great Parks North #1 and #2 maps. You will still need to check on the roads to find out if they are open. From all the reports we're hearing you don't want to follow the GD Canada routing at all - there's too many bridge closures and road washouts and damage.

The roads on the Great Divide Route through the Santa Fe National Forest between Abiquiu and Cuba are closed to all travel. See this link for more information: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/santafe/news-events/?cid=STELPRDB5425196

The easiest detour: from Abiquiu, go west on US 84, continue west on SR 96, then south on SR 96, then SE on US 550 to Cuba.

FR 150 was closed June 23 due to the Silver Fire. It's closed from just south of the Beaverhead Work Center (mile 99.1) to Hwy. 35 (mile 146.2). There's lots of fire vehicles on the road and the fire, which is east of the road, is heading north and west so that's why it was closed. It'll be closed anywhere from 7 -14 days.

The easiest detour would be to take Hwy. 12 west (mile 39.0), then south on US 180 to Silver City.

You can try contacting the state bike/pedestrian coordinators for IN, OH, KY and WV. They might be able to suggest something. Whatever way you go I suspect it will be hilly. Here's the link to the coordinators: http://www.walkinginfo.org/assistance/contacts.cfm

Routes / Re: Southern Tier timing and direction
« on: June 19, 2013, 10:59:32 am »
ACA has run a fall Southern Tier for many years beginning in Sept. and ending in Nov. This year it goes W-E beginning Sept. 14 and ends Nov. 17. So there is a precedence for going in the fall.

Routes / Re: Please advise: is Sept to late for Portland to Missoula?
« on: June 18, 2013, 10:05:21 am »
Typically, late September/early October in western MT/Idaho is dry and sunny - what they call "indian summer." Nights could reach below freezing in the higher elevations but that probably wouldn't occur until you almost reach Missoula.

Yes, you are correct. The TransAm intersects with the Underground Railroad about a mile south of the Ohio River ferry crossing in KY.

69
There is a bridge reconstruction on Wabash Rd. Going southbound you should continue west on Reamstown Rd. and follow the detour signs.

There was a post written about this about a year ago, mentioning using US 17 northward from Florida. Here's the link:

For routing in OR go to this link. There's several bike maps you can order: http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/BIKEPED/Pages/maps.aspx

I don't know if ID has any specific bike maps but you can check this page: http://itd.idaho.gov/bike_ped/

Routes / Re: Great Rivers route or Mississippi River Trail?
« on: April 11, 2013, 10:28:28 am »
Have you read the information on the Great Rivers South route? If not, go here: http://adventurecycling.org/routes/greatrivers.cfm Below the photo click on the text that says More for further information. I don't know anything about the Mississippi River Trail, but ACA's route leaves the Mississippi River in southern Missouri, heads southeast, and doesn't return to the river until Natchez, Mississippi. If your goal is to follow the river then the Mississippi River Trail would be better for you. The Great Rivers South uses a large portion of the Natchez Trace.

Routes / Re: Atlantic Coast Route close to Moorestown New Jersey
« on: April 10, 2013, 10:12:45 am »
Moorestown is about 12-15 miles east of Philadelphia across the river and the Atlantic Coast route does not go through there. The route leaves New Jersey farther north, and comes into the Philadelphia area from the northeast. You could take the Philadelphia Spur to get to downtown and that is the closest the route comes to Moorestown.
