Crossing Alabama
« on: April 26, 2016, 04:34:07 pm »
I need to ride across Alabama east to west, to reach the Underground Railroad trail. I'm beginning in Atlanta, so heading south to the Southern Tier isn't practical.

Does anyone know a route from Anniston or Piedmont, AL, to Fulton, MS or a town north?

To plan your own routing, you can get in touch with the bicycle coordinators for the states in which you will be traveling through and need routing. Many have online resources as well as printed materials. Nearly every state publishes a bicycle map of some sort that they will send out for free and the coordinators often have more information they can distribute for no charge as well. And while the maps aren't as detailed as ours, they generally offer suggested roads for cycling through their state. Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators:
