Chicago to New York City Route?
« on: March 09, 2017, 05:14:59 pm »
Hi,

On the PDF overview map I found a new route called the Chicago New York City route. But I cannot find any maps. Does anyone have some more information?

Which map is that? And I wonder if it's going to be a new part of the U.S.B.R.S. that I think is going to be unveiled soon.

According to Adventure Cycling's Cyclosource catalog, the maps won't be available until May 2017.

I've loved Bikecentennial / Adventure Cycling for 30+ years - but sometimes I do wonder.
The Chicago-New York routes are very round about.

What blows my mind is that the historic Lincoln Highway route is a back road for 300+ miles in Indiana and Ohio.
From Plymouth Indiana to Fort Wayne it is all back road because 4-lane US 30 is nearby - but usually out of sight/sound.
(Even less traffic on Old Trail Road) Plus Fort Wayne has a fabulous trail system along the rivers.

You can overnight at the welcoming town of Monroeville - then catch the Old Lincoln Highway again in Ohio.
Tons of history (first transcontinental highway) and camping in or near most county seats.

In PA, The northern blue line looks to be a lot of PA Bike Route V to it's eastern terminus in Portland, PA then up the Atlantic Coast route to Port Jervis, NY. If so, I have ridden a good deal of that. Not familiar with the route from Port Jervis into NYC.

The southern blue line appears to be the GAP to Cumberland, MD then possibly north to PA Bike Route S toward Philly then through NJ for a ferry ride to NYC.

Living in Philly, I am interested in seeing the details come May.

The new route will be available in mid-May. The main route stays in northern PA and does use a portion of PA Route V. There is a Philadephia Alternate that uses the GAP and a portion of the C&O Canal.

Great. Put me down for a set of maps. Maybe I will get to ride some of it in late summer.
