Can't wait for the ACA to finish mapping this route. Should be fun.

I thought of driving this rte but never consider biking. Maybe when I'm 60 if it takes 20 yrs to get done

Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down.
Faith + grace = salvation

This would be great - we have traveled this route in several places by car and is scenic. My husband has often said we should ride our bikes to Indiana (hometown) from California (current city). This would be a great route although I don't think I would be up to it. He said we could do it in a month traveling close to 100 miles a day... It sounds good but I don't know... emoticon emoticon

Adventure Cycling ( www.adventurecycling.org ) is a terrific organization. Here is news about one of their latest efforts:

"Adventure Cycling Association today announced that its next long-distance cycling route will be Bicycle Route 66. Embracing the spirit of "The Mother Road," the new route will follow the famous corridor from Chicago to Los Angeles on roads appropriate for cyclists and, when possible, on sections of the historic highway.

"Route 66 was the overwhelming favorite among our members for a new long-distance route," said Carla Majernik, Adventure Cycling's routes and mapping director. "It's a legendary corridor and, for our route network, a critical link through areas where we have no routes, such as Oklahoma."

Established 84 years ago in November 1926, Route 66 was one of the original U.S. highways, ferrying travelers and migrants between Chicago and Los Angeles along the 2,451-mile roadway. The route traversed Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, connecting major cities such as Chicago, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Flagstaff, and Los Angeles. "The Mother Road" also flowed through small communities, which blossomed in the wake of the steady stream of travelers."
