Thanks for posting info on a detour for this closure!


Just received this report via Twitter:

> Long-term closure on #acapacificcoast between Palo Colorado Rd and Bixby Bridge in Big Sur. 40ft of road disappeared today.

This occurs on Map 47. CalTrans also reports that SR 1 is closed from 2.5 mi. S. to 1.5 mi. S. of Big Sur. No detour evident.


Welcome Danielle!

I am also looking for suggestions on a route from Fort Myers Beach to the Tamiami Trail east of Naples. Anyone familiar with navigating this urban area? So far we have looked on Google maps and charted our best guess of a route through the cities.

You might want to check your Google map suggestions against the maps found on the Florida DOT Bicycle Pedestrian page:

Or you could get in tough with their office directly for their opinion and/or suggestions:

Dennis Scott
State Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 850-245-1527
fax: 850-245-1554

Dwight Kingsbury
Assistant Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 8502451520
fax: 8502451554

Hope that helps.

Be sure to check the resources Colorado DOT has posted on their site for information on routing.


Never mind....after a really close review of a handful of wps i have discovered that if a waypoint is "on top" of another road i.e a bridge or overpass...the software didnt allways get it where it was intended....i.e itwas supposed to be on the "bottom" recalulate a new route..

Aha, glad there was a reason things looked askew to you!


I am planning a Mobile Al to Springfield Mo(or St. Louis) in May 2011.  I overlaid sections the UGRR (T02150)and GR (D02280) and one of intersections confuses me.

Is there a reason that the two routes  don’t share the same roads between WP T020Z0/D02850 and T020T0/D028C0?

From what I can tell, between the two waypoints you indicate, the routes are both the same - the Natchez Trace Parkway. The waypoints that were created to show this were done by two different people and as such different selections were made.

I hope that helps.

If it works for you, Monroeville is very welcoming of cyclists.  There is an air conditioned community center where you can spend the night.

Yes! Thanks for promoting Monroeville, one of our longest standing Cyclists' Only Lodging options. You can read more about them in a blog post:

You might want to check Charlie Myer's blog and look into getting his book. I've read rave reviews of it as a resource. I think he also reads these forums now and then.

Good luck and let us know how it went.

I suppose it depends on what you're looking to experience. In the timeframe you mention, it will require 100 mile days on end, tough to do but even more so as the daylight will be getting shorter at that point. And you won't get to experience much off the bike or have any days for rest, checking out something intriguing, etc. You might want to consider starting somewhere mid-way across like Austin, Texas, or another route entirely. You could do much of the Pacific Coast in that time, see a lot of Florida (including the Keys). I'm others have suggestions, too.

Have fun with the planning!


the bridge repairs are done and route is open.  i live here.
