We have learned via our Tours Department that it is anticipated that the road through Lassen Volcanic National Park will likely remain closed through mid to late June. This is a couple of weeks later than "normal".

This is a potential reroute (going south to north):


Routes / Re: Utah Cliffs Loop (ACA) in early May?

According to this page from Utah DOT, SR 148 which goes through Cedar Breaks National Monument, it won't be open until late May/early June.

While the route doesn't go through the monument, it gives you some idea of the area conditions. The route DOES use a number of roads that are likely not plowed.

These conditions will vary from year to year. I suggest contacting the Dixie National Forest to get their take on it this year.


Excellent news. Thanks, jamawani!


Problem i have just discovered is that after buying the routes from ACA and loading them onto the Garmin with the service points, the service points dont show on the Garmin?

Any suggestions?

Check out the quick guide we have on our website for the Garmin 800 (I believe that is the unit you are using) under the heading Service Points.

Good, I'm glad it's working for you!

I just spoke to someone at El Dorado County Tourism office and they said Omo Ranch Rd. is still closed due to snow. They were not optimistic about it clearing soon.

Once it clears, you can use this detour: It adds about 8 miles to the route and goes through Omo Ranch which has a convenience store. Omo Ranch Rd. status can be checked at

It does work for me. Have you checked your profile page to confirm it has your correct (and expected) email address?


Shake Ridge Rd. has been washed out and a detour is necessary.  It is unknown when this road will be repaired. In the meantime, the following detour is suggested:

This will add approximately 14 miles to the route. It goes through the All Services town of Volcano.

Updates may be found from Amador County:

I'm not sure how to give/get update info for the digital maps.  I noticed on the Route 66 map 6 it shows leaving Cajon Rd and going through Devore.  The recent construction has reconnected Cajon Rd so you don't have to climb the hill into Devore.  Cajon Rd now continues under the freeway.

You can send feedback to us at cartographyATadventurecyclingDOTorg or via the Map Correction Form on the website.

I'll put this information in the hopper. We're in the midst of finishing up the Chicago to NYC route maps at the moment. We'll get to updating the addenda as soon as they are complete.

EDIT: Actually, I just checked the addenda. I think it's in there now:

(Dec 2016) Cajon Blvd is now continuous between Kenwood Ave. on the west and Devore Rd./Glen Helen Pkwy. on the east, it is no longer necessary to turn at (B) and [D].

The digital data will be updated with this information when we have compiled enough changes to justify an update.


If you have purchased the our digital data, when you click on the icon you will find exactly the same information we have for that location as is found on the printed maps. Lodging, bike shops, libraries, campgrounds have name, address, phone and other tidbits of information as we know them. Food services such as convenience stores and restaurants show their location when off route or outside of a town. If these are located within a town, they are associated with the town rather than their actual location because we do not have that.

I hope this helps.

from what i can gather from caltrans is that they are working on a walk around where you can walk/carry bike to bypass damaged bridge.

Our understanding of this footbridge, from the park superintendent, is that it is primarily for locals and WILL NOT be open to cyclists.

If you've purchased the Northern Tier paper maps, they include the zip codes for towns that have post offices where General Delivery packages are received. This older blog post might be of use, too, but as usual, the forum community here has made several good points not in the post:

Have a great trip!


From the Pacific Coast Section 4 addenda (2/27/17):

It is unknown when the bridge will be replaced. Due to a lack of nearby roads, an extensive reroute is required. The reroute is 145.7 mi. and can be found at this RideWithGPS link: It is about 30 miles longer than the Pacific Coast route. It begins on map 46 in Marina and ends on map 51 south of Cayucos. Services are limited for the 60 miles between King City and Paso Robles. Also, because this route travels inland, the weather will be significantly different than that on the coast. It will typically be drier and up to 20 degrees hotter.

To be more specific as to when a map was last printed, go to the individual map section's page on the online store. Under the paragraph description it will say:

Current Printed Version: XXXX (XXXX being the year it was reprinted).

And yes, addenda are posted for maps as interim map updates and corrections and are posted more frequently than a map is reprinted.

Excellent. I'm glad you got the updated information. I was just about to post the same contact info when I saw you'd already received it. Yay!
