I have to admit - I was guessing at the percentage and did not take the time to figure it out. Thanks for correcting me.

Adventure Cycling clearly has an unrealistic view of the percentage paved, both for the whole GD route and for this particular section from Roosville to Helena.
In this section roughly 25%, about 90 miles in a total of 370 miles, is paved. The detailing by Iowagriz is also what I remember.
For the total route it is more likely between 10-20%.

That's what I'm talking about!

Sounds amazing.

Background is I'm from, work and live (unsurprisingly given I work here) in the UK. Got a year work/holiday visa for Canada and going to move over to BC in January. No job sorted as yet so should be pretty flexible in terms of when I plan to set off.

Keep me in the loop with your plans as it would be great to at least start / do some of the ride with you guys!

Look forward to hearing from you

Routes / Clinton Mo to Pittsburgh, KS
« Last post by Ben the Slow on August 29, 2014, 06:19:37 pm »
I am riding the Katy Trail westward.  Please let me me know if you have a route to connect the Katy (at Clinton, Mo) with the TransAmerican ACA route, likely at or near Pittsburg, KS..
Thanks, ben
I contacted Rubel in June about the central map.  Andrew wants to reprint the Central map, but personal issues have taken up much of his time.  I'd watch for a reprint in the future.

I agree that an east-west route would be good.  We rode from Albany to Boston in early June along the northern part of the commonwealth.  We found the roads to be very nice.  The vast majority of drivers were very considerate.

On the MassDOT website, I found a master cycling plan which included cross-state routes, but no evidence that any work had been done.
Carla, will your shop update the addendum?
1. The rehabilitation project from Pittsford to Fairport is now completed.  For details, see the Canal Corp. website at

2. Construction on adjoining I-390 continues, between East Henrietta and Kendrick roads.  The trail is rarely closed, but if they're lifting steel for a bridge they close for part of a day.  One section about 150M/500' is gravel but is rideable with most tires.

In 2009, the Goethels Bridge eastbound to Staten Island carried an average of over 38,000 vehicles per day. Over 2,700 of those were large trucks. The decision to ride a bike on that Interstate (and many others) should not be left to the individual.
California / Tours around San Francisco Area
« Last post by footfoot on August 29, 2014, 09:22:26 am »
I am traveling to San Francisco in a few weeks and was looking to do a three or four day bicycle tour around the area. I have never been to the west coast, so I have no idea what to expect or where to start. What are you favorite tours that go through the SF area? Should I head east or along the coast? Are there places for bikers to camp? Any ideas or help would be great!
