Bicycle Route 66 / Route 66 (Part 2) - Flagstaff to Santa Monica
« on: September 24, 2014, 11:39:54 am »
Having completed Part 1 (see our blog at, we are getting ready to complete the route beginning late October (around the 25th) with an estimated completion date of Nov. 2nd.  For this segment, we will have a SAG vehicle, so we will have a few more options re: accommodations (still can't convince my wife to camp).  One of those options will be to drive the segment from Needles, CA to Barstow, CA since its 150 miles with virtually no accommodations (although I understand there is a place to stay in Ludlow).

I would love to hear from anyone who has cycled through the LA area, particularly from San Bernardino to Santa Monica, with suggestions on a good route to take through the metro LA area, or where we might find maps/routes that are bicycle friendly.

If you're considering Route 66 as a bicycle adventure, we can highly recommend it.  Our trip from Flagstaff to Chicago was full of great places and fabulous people.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff & Ellen

I believe I read that the route has essentially been laid out.  My wife and I are planning on starting from Flagstaff (we have a house in Phoenix) and riding East to Chicago in the spring of 2014 and then riding from Flagstaff to Santa Monica in the fall.  I'm concerned about facilities & accommodations between Flagstaff and Gallup, NM as we're trying to make this a credit card trip without any camping (i.e., without having to carry camping gear).  Can you provide any information about the towns and/or facilities & accommodations along the route between Flagstaff and Gallup?

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.
