TransAm Express Map Set?
« on: August 09, 2023, 11:38:08 am »
I'm starting to plan my next tour for next year and am interested in the TransAm Express following the route of the guided tour that Adventure Cycling as posted on the website here:

https://www.adventurecycling.org/guided-tours/van-supported-tours/transam-express-westward-van/

Again, I've just started my research, so may be missing something that's right under my nose, but it seems there isn't a set of ACA maps specifically for this route?

I did the TransAm in 2018 and really enjoyed it, so was considering repeating that, but I really like the Eastern part of the route on the TransAm West tour. I also don't see maps for the C&O Canal Trail or the Great Allegheny Passage used at the start of this route. Maybe those are not ACA routes and are published by different organizations, but just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a complete TransAm Express set of maps (and digital downloads) before I started piecing these together.

Thanks for any insight.

Answering my own question here in case anyone else is interested. After playing around with the interactive map page, it seems the Eastern Express Connector and the Chicago to NY maps will do it connecting me to the original TransAm in CO.

The official website for the GAP trail is very informative.  IIRC, it's gaptrail.org.

We used it in Sept. as part of our ride from Dayton, OH to Norfolk, VA.
