Which cycling maps for U.S. and Canada?

<< < (2/2)

For Canada, MapArt prints some decent scale maps which you can buy at almost every gas station. The "Southern Alberta Range Road" map shows practically all the rural roads, and the one for BC is not bad. The corridors through the Rockies and the Cascades are pretty well limited to the roads shown (most have decent shoulders), with the exception of the rail trails such as the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR) trail. These trails can be quite rough, sometimes you need to negotiate around landslides and washouts, so if you are hauling a lot of gear it can be tedious.

Natural Resources Canada will be launching a new website called GeoGratis soon ( ). When it comes into service sometime this winter, you should be able to download detailed topographic maps of any region in Canada for free

Here's some info specific to Oregon biking

Sounds like a great trip!
