Seeking assistance for route
« on: July 10, 2011, 01:40:04 pm »
My brother and three friends are in the beginning planning stages for a trip from north eastern Ohio to Myrtle Beach South Carolina.  Does anyone have any suggestions for routes and roads that we could take once we get into W. V and beyond Any other suggestions would help on planning as well. Thanks

Hi there,

Since we do not have a route with those specific endpoints. I suggest you take a look at the routes we do have mapped to see which parts
you could potentially use:

Once you get to that page, in the right side navigation bar there is a link called Map of All ACA Routes that is a download of a pdf that clearly shows our network and how it intersects with itself.

The next step is to fill in the gaps. Start by getting in touch with the bicycle coordinators for the states in which you will be traveling through and need routing. Most have online resources of some sort as well as printed materials. The coordinators have information that they can distribute for no charge. Most every state publishes a bicycle map of their state that they will send out for free. 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:

Once you have an idea of routing, you might want to come back here to solicit feedback and refinements to your proposed routing.

Good luck and have fun!
