Routes / Re: Sioux Falls, South Dakota - to West Central Wisconsin
« on: June 29, 2009, 01:36:37 pm »
I suggest you contact the bike/ped coordinators for SD and MN to see if their states have bike maps available. Here's a link to reach them: Wisconsin does have a nice set of maps:

From mile 84.1 to mile 88.5 the road has become private property so access is no longer allowed. At this point, June 4, 2009, ACA does not have a way around this closure, but we are working on it. We recommend that you use the Chaco Alternate between Cuba and Grants. As soon as we have new routing we will list it on the online addenda.

You could contact the IN and IL state bike/ped coordinators to see if they have any suggestions. I know that IL has state bike maps available here: And here's a link to Indiana:

Routes / Re: Route 464 (Duck Lake Road) from Babb to Browning, Montana

My info is from 10+ years ago riding that road. It was paved, and there's a climb from US 89 onto a plateau. There was very little traffic. I think it would be a good alternate to use to shorten your trip.

This website page has Great Divide shuttle options: Look about halfway down the page.

Routes / Re: Starting the TransAmerica

ACA has been hearing that taking your bike with you on a plane has gotten very expensive lately. You should check with your airline as to what they charge. And yes, Richmond is the closest large city to Yorktown, the beginning of the TransAm. You can ship your bike to a bike shop listed on the map, and have them put it together for you if you don't feel like you can do it yourself. Another idea would be to ship your bike to a shop in Williamsburg (close to Yorktown) and then find out if there is a shuttle service from the Richmond airport to Williamsburg. Make sure you call the bike shop ahead of time to find out if they will reassemble your bike.

ACA is not presently working on a route like you listed. I suggest that you contact the state bike/ped coordinators for the states you might think you'd go through. Many states do publish a bike map, but they vary greatly in the types of information they provide. Here's a link:

When you mention close trails were you thinking of the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes? Here's a website to get more info:

Routes / Re: Pittsburg, Pa. to Sandusky, Ohio

There is a published map by an ACA member that connects Pittsburgh and Cleveland by a more direct route than going north to Erie. Once you get to Cleveland you can use the Northern Tier Route section 9 map. ACA sells the map in the online store:

Routes / Re: Anyone use the downloadable maps?
« on: February 24, 2009, 05:08:31 pm »
All the same features that are on the regular maps are on the downloadable maps. They are designed to be printed on 8.5" x 11" sheets and can be folded into thirds to fit into a handlebar bag to show a map panel. The Green Mountains Loop map is a bit harder to read since it is a loop going in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions and alternates are also shown on the map panels, but if you have used other ACA maps you'll be able to figure it out.

The Lewis & Clark section 6 map shows the routing and services between Missoula and Great Falls. It still might be slightly snowy over Rogers Pass - it depends on what the May storms bring. Portions of Hwy. 200 do not have shoulders. The MT DOT publishes a brochure on traffic data for bicyclists, here's the link:
If you click on Bicycling Map a pdf will appear. To get a hard copy email

Routes / Re: Jacksonville, FL to Amelia Island
« on: February 02, 2009, 01:27:35 pm »
Do you have the Atlantic Coast Route section 6 map? From Jacksonville, if you go to Callahan and head east to Fernandina Beach the route then takes you south along the coast so you wouldn't be doing any backtracking. Due to the rivers in the area you can only approach Fernandina Beach from the west or south.

Connecting ACA Routes / Northern tier to Pittsburg

The Lake Erie Connector ends in Ft. Erie, ON. You can cross the Peace
Bridge into Buffalo, NY and follow the ACA Underground Railroad section
5 routing to Erie, PA. From there you can take the Underground Railroad
Pittsburgh Spur to Pittsburgh to connect to the Allegheny Passage.

There are certain places in CA where bicyclists ARE allowed - the Southern
Tier Route uses a portion of I-8. It is our understanding that bicycles can
use an interstate if there are no parallel roads. But to be sure, you should
check with the CA bike/pedestrian coordinator, Ken McGuire, email:, website:

If you know the law then you can mention it if a highway patrolman stops
