Then you just switch off the lights (we don't intend to do much night riding) and it goes down to 5mph!

I just quite like the idea of using power that I have generated myself as I pedal along.

You have to be doing about 7mph in order to have both the lights on and be charging... Not hard at all.
Hmmmm, lights and charging a voltage sensing device at the same time. Good luck with that, it didn't work for me.
And when you reach the hills, 7mph can be very hard.

I have not real experience with it, obviously. FWIW I found the cycling layer to be a little confusing to follow for stretches of northern Nebraska that I plan to cycle this spring. I think the problem (and a problem that is shared by google maps in bicycle mode) is that US highway numbers often are not present.

You can take interstates10 and 8 and use googlemaps to pick your way through cities.

Google for guided bicycle tours in Ireland. I cycled north Ireland during the troubles. Beautiful country with plenty of rain, warm pubs and pints of Guinness. My first visit there in 1980 they derailed our train and killed 18 and injured 70. The following morning a bomb in another train station killed 86 and injured 200. Injuries were extremely serious. The fact of six months of precisely worded terrorist threats before those two incidents lends an even more sinister suspicious aspect. Not to say cycling there is a sure pass to the afterlife. You can have a great time cycling there. Bring your rain gear.
China might have some restrictive visa regulations which you might want to find out before you go. The same with Kazakhstan.

Three are safer than two. They have a cycling partners section at the ACA page.

Hi Scott,

I think I'm not understanding what is missing for you. Perhaps it's the fact that the last map section, from Clarkston to Seaside, is numbered 7 and there are 8 maps in the set? Section 8 is not part of the main route. On its eastbound journey, the Corps took a different route back, section 8 represents this journey. It might be easier to see this by looking at the Overview and Detail maps available on the main Lewis & Clark Routes & Mapping page:

Hope this helps.
