Great information. We currently use the Pere Marquette from Clare to Midland. I will file this information for future updates.

Hi Bicycle Rider,

Anybody have any wild ideas as to when this A.C.A. route might just come into existence?

It will likely be late 2014 before the first map sections will be available.


Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Chesapeake Bay Tunnel to ACA AC Route

Hi Spokey,

I read a blog a couple years ago that you could call the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel folks and for the price of the toll, they would cart you to Virginia Beach.  I think that I called them at the time and verified this and my brother is going to do it again (soon I hope), but was wondering if anyone here could verify this and/or provide other information.  How long did it take?  How well did it work?  How much advance notice?  etc.

You can contact the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel staff via the information at the Virginia Department of Transportation website to get most of your questions answered:


Road construction on SR 2 between Havre and Harlem makes riding difficult to impassable. You may want to hitch a ride through here if you can.

Check the Montana DOT road conditions map to watch progress:


The flooding continues to impact the city of Minot. We've just heard that all campgrounds in the area are still closed. If you plan to overnight there, it may be a good idea to call ahead for reservations at a hotel.


In Sioux City, the Gateway Trail and Chris Larsen Park are closed due to damage from flooding earlier this spring. You will need to navigate through the city. We don't have specifics as of yet but will post them when we do.


South / Re: bike routes in western alabama

I tried contacting the Alabama bike pedestrian coordinator a few weeks ago by both phone and e-mail, with no response to either.

Sorry to hear that. Were the maps in the draft plan any help?

I'll send this out on our twitter account and see if we can get you some responses.


We received a report that CR 7 is closed to through traffic, there is nothing on the Minnesota DOT site so it is not clear how long this will be in effect. CR 3 to the east appears to be the best detour.

edit to add:

I just received a recommendation of another way around this closure:

Highly recommend Great River Off Road trail btw Winona and La Crosse. Is dirt but flat/bare. Avoid Hwy 7 mess.

I don't have more specifics than that, but the map on this page might be helpful:


General Discussion / Re: Southern Tier- Travelling from UK - Help

You might try sending a PM to tonythompson here on the forums. I think he's from the UK and rides in Florida quite a bit. I'm thinking he may be out on tour at the moment which is why he hasn't responded to your query.

Im working on a small cycling hostel/camp spot in republic, with showers and laundry services, I should have it completed by the start of next years season.  Thanks Craig

Sounds great, Craig. Let us know the details when you're up and running.

Thanks for the update Craig. We'll get it added to the addenda for the Northern Tier route.

Just a suggestion for the area going through Torrance, CA:

Thanks for your detailed suggestion. I'm going to put it in our files so we can look at it more closely when that route gets reprinted. Local information is great to have for making route adjustments along the way, appreciate you for offering yours.



Thanks for posting. I look forward to hearing a more recent report. These situations can change quickly.


Thanks for the info!

And it's great they are keeping cyclists in mind as they work.


Just outside of Shawano, the SR 22 bridge over Wolf River is closed due to construction. It should be complete by the end of 2011. For the most current informatio, see Wisconsin's 511 page:
