Routes / Milwaukee, WI to Omaha, NE
« on: February 02, 2012, 11:10:10 pm »
Hello all. I'm planning a cycling trip from Milwaukee to Omaha, NE probably during next fall. I plan on cycling 50-60 miles per day for the duration of the trip and tent camping. I am familiar with routes all the way out of WI, so essentially, I'm looking for the most scenic and most bike-friendly route through Iowa and into Omaha. I've heard that a lot of people really love Iowa tours, so I thought I'd post on here to see if anyone has any insights about routes or any other miscellaneous things I should know. Thank you!

Thank you both so much!  ;D These specifics were exactly what I was hoping for in the way of advice.

Routes / Milwaukee, WI to Jasper NP

Hello. I'm planning a trip (in the not-so-near future) from Milwaukee to Jasper NP. I'm familiar with WI trails and am planning on taking my own route to Minneapolis. From Minneapolis, I'm planning on connecting with the Northern Tier to Williston, where I'll take the portion of the Lewis and Clarke trail that runs through Billings and Bozeman and then taking the section that appears to merge with the TransAmerica Trail up to Missoula. I'll spend some time there, meet with a friend, and then take the most direct route of the Northern Parks Trail to Banff NP and Jasper NP. I'm planning on taking my time (up to a summer for the whole deal), pedaling 45-60 miles per day on biking days, tent camping, smelling the roses, and packing up my bike and supplies at the end and taking a bus or train back home.

This is by far the longest route I've ever planned or cycled, although I've done several shorter tours. Does anybody have any suggestions for places to visit? Modifications to the route? Words of wisdom? I've also never used an Adventure Cycling route map, but I plan on it for this trip. Does anybody have any insights to share about the maps?

Many thanks!
