HI
Is it possible to find the Route on a map that can be downloaded to a GPS?
Thanks

Currently, the GPS data for that routing can be found on this page:

http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/routes/

There is also support available through the GPS Discussion area: http://forums.adventurecycling.org/index.php?board=3.0

Best,
Jennifer

Hello France,

What you are downloading is data, not a map. Where ever you display the data, you will need a background map from that source (smart device or gps unit).

Just follow the coast highway. I did it with roadmaps and DOT maps. DOT will send maps for free, or they did in 1993, anyway.

In 2005, we found this to be not so easy, esp from Santa Barbara to just south of Oxnard.  It was extremely confusing in places there. 
May the wind be at your back!

The way can be more complicated than just following the road. Maps, GPS, google maps, which most seem to have, should eliminate any uncertainties. That was an excellent ride. Ana Cortes to San Diego.  Washington rocked, Oregon rained, California rolled.
