For various reasons I've gone "off route" on some of my travels with ACA maps, choosing what I thought were comparable roads. In every case, I've encountered roads with more traffic, poor shoulders, more commercial trucks, or some combination of all of these. In short order one develops a deep trust in ACA maps that frees the mind to know they have the best routes out there already in place. Thank you for all the research and attention to detail!

Maps are great, as well as the updates. Some of the routing could be better, especially in western Virgina / eastern Kentucky area.

Excellent detail. I would not attempt my upcoming trip from Kansas to Virginia without the guidance that these maps provide. Over the next few months I will study these maps in detail to help me mentally prepair for my cycling adventure or adventure...cycling. Catchy name...
