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: ridewithgps.com/routes/20632419 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 www.eldoradocounty.org/roads.html

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.

ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: App Download process and update plans

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):

Quote
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: ridewithgps.com/routes/19189649 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!

Thanks, Slowroll for letting me know about the bounce back. I'll let others know who might be able to get it updated.

Hey Dan,

I'd check the resources available in each state in which you will be traveling through and need routing. 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 bicycle/pedestrian 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 and some online materials:

http://www.pedbikeinfo.org/data/state.cfm

For more tips and ideas on how to create your own route, see this blog post on the topic:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/blog/how-to-create-your-own-route/

Good luck and have a great tour!

It looks like The Big Sur blog is also keeping a Facebook page on the situation. They likely will have the most local, close to the source, information:

Great Eleonre! I'm glad you got the data to work.

Hi Eleonore,

I tried to buy a few of the digital maps that ACA offers but haven't managed to open them on my computer - any tips?

Have you seen our support pages on the website for the digital data?  This blog post also outlines some of the resources found on those pages:

https://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/blog/paper-route-maps-vs-digital-data-what-it-means-how-to-use-it

If you still have questions, please post them in our GPS Discussion on these forums.

Best,
Jennifer
