route 66 updates
« on: August 04, 2015, 03:07:44 pm »
really appreciate all the help i've gotten on this forum!

i've just read about some issues on route 66.  some of it is a little dated, like jan 2015, but it said about some bridges being out and the section btw ludlow and fenner being closed and the ambiguity as to whether cyclists can indeed "legally" hop on I40. 

anyone know of the current conditions?

and do most gas stations allow poor cyclists to grab a little water from a tap or a well??

There was a blog post on the issues we were having with the route in California due to bridges being out and road conditions being extremely poor:

Specific information on the detours necessary are on the addenda for Bicycle Route 66 Section 6:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/map-addenda/

When you buy the maps a paper version of the addenda will be included but it is also advised to check online before you go and part way through your trip for updated information.
