Hi Chuck,

I suggest 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 a wealth of 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. Traffic volumes and shoulder information is often found on maps called suitability maps not necessarily found on the bicycling specific pages.

Here is a link to the contact information for all of the bicycle coordinators:

Hope this helps get you started.
