Sierra Cascade Route, starting to sweat the release date
« on: March 05, 2010, 10:58:51 am »
I think have read "late winter or early spring of 2010", "late march", and now on the map at http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/images/SierraCascadesMap.pdf it says "Research was completed in the summer of 2008 and the maps should be available late spring 2010."

This has me nervous since we have a planned departure of June 1 and Spring ends June 21st.  We will go with or without AC maps, but using a 20 year old guide book would not thrill me.  Has the delivery date really slipped to late Spring?  Is it going to slip further?

I have to say I will be very disappointed with Adventure Cycling if they do not have maps available by our June 1 start date when they projected late winter or early spring of 2010 at the time we started seriously planning the trip.

So...  Is there any updated word on what the real release date might be?

Call the Sales Department (800-721-8719) in mid-April. The maps should be in the office around then. I can't give you an exact date because the printing process is always approximate.
