Good luck with your personal adventures or goals.

John & The Sons of Shankly

John,
The Transamerica route crosses old Route 66 just east of Springfield, at Marshfield, MO.  You could stay on old 66 'til there, then follow the TransAm to near Yorktown, VA and figure out a route from there to Virginia Beach, only a short distance away.

There are a lot of Route 66 Bike journals posted at www.crazyguyonabike.com/  One of my favorites is Oris Barber's at http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=1&doc_id=7977&v=1Ou/

At crazyguy... you can search to find a lot of journals.

Jennifer,

I believe I read somewhere that the ACA Route map was anticipated for 2014; are they still on track for 2014?  Do you have any idea whether it would be available in time to ride the route in 2014?  I just finished the Atlantic Coast route this summer and my wife and I are hoping to ride Route 66 in 2014.

Regards,

Jeff
Chicago, IL

We are shooting to have Bicycle Route 66 maps published late 2014 so unfortunately, I don't think it will match your desire to ride the route in 2014.

Sorry,
.Jennifer.
