Chose for ACA to print maps for me. Paper quality not as durable as the longer route maps (i.e. TransAm, Pacific Coast) and found myself having to baby them a bit more than other's i've used. Also, it takes a few times of reading the map to understand how all the panels flow. This is due to the route being a circle and some panels overlapping, etc. But once read it a few times you realize how well it flows and easy it is to read. I found the elevation profile to be very helpful in planning out each day since there are some BIG climbs scattered throughout the route. All and all the route does a good job in avoiding long stretches of some of the busy roads (i.e. 460 down near Blacksburg....don't bike on it!) I did the route in a clockwise direction and found towns to be spread out at just the right distances. Overall, a great route and highly recommend. Maps were very accurate in displaying towns, camp sites, mileage, etc.
