I was turned down at multiple community centers due to local kids having camps (understandable) and asked about churches and nobody said cyclists could stay there.  I never went in to the churches and asked though.

I found many more campgrounds east of Quebec City and its not a problem there.  Ended up staying at a hotel for one night in Sorrell Tracy because I could find no camping.

Routes / Re: TA Town List, W2E

I did the TA a few years back and was negatively amazed by how many errors the newly updated maps incl their freshly downloaded addendums had:

1. Closed grocery stores
2. Closed roads

... and when talking to the locals these closures were not new at all but have been in effect for years at worst.

I learnt a great deal about the erros by talking to other cyclist going in the other direction.

Thanks Pat,

I did pick up the paper maps and GPX maps for the first 2 sections. I live in Central Oregon so may use the route for training. I figured I check this group to see if someone had previously listed the towns, distances, etc on a word doc or spreadsheet that I could access. If there doesn't end up being one out there I may create one and have it available to all.

Thanks.

Get the map set.  It lists services (grocery stores, bike shops, etc.) in each town along the way.  Plus, you'll want the maps for navigation.

Routes / TA Town List, W2E

Hey all,

I'm considering the TA road race next year. Wondering if there is a listing of the major towns along the route (W2E) for planning purposes, posted anywhere on the internet or for sale. Would likely carry it with me during the race. Thanks all, happy riding.

I think most travellers who finish a long trip such as the transam become emotionally attached to their bike. And would never sell it :-)
