General Discussion / Re: ACA Tour catalog question
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:13:08 am »
I just received a Grab Your Bike & GO catalog and in the index listing of tours there is a number that ranges from 10-80. Is this number a minimum for the trip to be a go, or is it a maximum number allowed, or an average number of riders participating?

I'd like to help. Can you be more specific about where you are seeing this number that is unclear? Perhaps a page number and tour name where you are seeing this?

GPS & Digital Data Discussion / Re: How Often are WayPoints Updated?
« on: September 15, 2017, 08:41:54 am »
John,

We are planning to update the digital data more often as it gets rolled into our processes. Subsequently, the data within the apps will also get updated since the source for these two products is the same. If we learn of changes that need to be made to routes due to a safety situation, we are updating and releasing the data as quickly as we can, in advance of the paper maps. Paper map users will get those changes via the Map Corrections and Updates.

At this point it is a higher priority to keep creating new data for distribution than make minor updates to existing data when that information is available via the Map Corrections and Updates pages.

Pacific Northwest / Re: wildfires along the pc

You can get an idea of the fire activity along our routes on this interactive map:

We don't control how often the data is updated so you should click on the links for each fire to see the most current info.

Though this thread is a bit old, I wanted to clarify that route detour. It will become a permanent route change with the updating of the maps this spring.

One particular suggestion for a route: You can use sections 5 and 6 of ACA's Northern Tier route to make a loop in mostly MN that uses many miles of trails. Fargo is one possible starting point. Somewhere on the website is an article about it.

I rode some of those very trails this summer, really great riding and the on-road portions were comfortable, too, as far as traffic volumes (though little shoulder at times). I wrote a blog post on the topic when we first released this revise routing:

There are a few sections slated for update in the coming months. It is unknown exactly when they will be available for sale. I'd hold off until March or so to purchase your maps.

I heard from someone in Caltrans today (6/9/17). She says the project is a priority to fix but it will likely be at least 30 days until the road is reopened. The sinkhole is bigger than it appears from the surface and is at least 10 ft deep.

District 7 is responsible for this repair. There should be updates on their News page coming soon:

Or you can call their office at 213-897-3656 in a few days for an update.

Due to a sinkhole located 4.5 miles W. of San Bernardino/Los Angeles County line, Angeles Crest Hwy./SR 2 is closed between Blue Ridge Rd. (on map 64) and SR 39 (on map 63). It is unknown when this will be fixed. A recommended detour begins just outside Palmdale at the intersection of Sierra Hwy. and Pearblossom Hwy. on map 62 and ends at the intersection of Big Pines Rd./FR N4 and Angeles Crest Hwy./SR 2 on map 64. A map is available at this link:

Routes / Re: Notes on Great Western Express Map 3

Thanks Ladyworldcyclist!

I'll add your information to our next round of Map Updates and Corrections (Addenda) for the Western Express Section 3.

We recently received a notice from a Michigan DOT Bicycle and Pedestrian coordinator regarding a bridge construction project on US 2, in the Upper Peninsula just north of Escanaba. This is a two-year project but they expect to have enough work done for the 2018 riding season such that this will not be an issue at that time.

While cyclists may ride through the construction, MDOT is urging them to ride their suggested detour instead due to the dramatically reduced useable space through the construction. The detour is outlined on their press release:

We have heard from a trusted local source that this has been repaired and the road is reopened.

Be aware there is construction occurring on I-8 this summer. See their site for more info on detours and shuttles for cyclists:
