Bicycle Route
« on: December 25, 2012, 11:27:12 pm »
I haven't been on this site in a long time but it's good to be back again and seeing so many people interested in bicyce touring and staying in shape.
Since the last time i visited this website i have already been on two tours and i am hoping to do another one late spring of next year. I live currently in Utah and i am hoping to ride to Idaho Fallls by myself. Talking from expierence i was wondering if there are any maps on Adventure Cycling or if i have to get all the mapping from google maps. Google Maps isn't that bad of an idea but if i can i hope to use some of adventure cycling maps.
I have plenty expierence on what to bring and how to take care of myself on the road but the only question is how to get from utah to idaho falls?
And the rest of the trip i'll take care of when i get there. The main trip will be from Utah to Idaho Falls take few weeks off visiting friends and headed to Oregon and end up at Adventure Cycling HQ.

Any guidance or ride alongs would be great.

thanks

Ride Safe.

Jake:
Unfortunately, we do not have a route with those specific endpoints. I suggest you get in touch with the bicycle coordinators for UT and ID. Many have online resources as well as printed materials. Nearly every state publishes a bicycle map of some sort that they will send out for free and the coordinators often have more information they can distribute for no charge as well. And while the maps aren't as detailed as ours, they generally offer suggested roads for cycling through their state. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators:
