Cycling Route 66 west from Flagstaff
« on: January 18, 2017, 11:56:09 pm »
I am attending Overland Expo West in Flagstaff this coming May and am planning my trip back towards California and would like to cycle along part of route 66 which runs through Flagstaff but it is national highway for part of it which I understand cycle are not allowed on. Does anyone now if there is a service road or cycle path which runs along this piece of highway 40 or have an alternative suggestion? I am from the UK so not entrely familiar with US traffic regulations.

Follow the ACA maps and you'll be fine. Bicycles are allowed on some sections of the interstate and prohibited on others. The best way to sort it all out is with the maps. Even when allowed, it's best to avoid as much of the interstate as you can. You'll love the challenge of the Mojave Desert and Sitgreaves Pass.
