Maintaining a keen awareness of your surroundings is one of the best things you can do to keep yourself safe when cycling on the road. Since bicycles don't come stock with rearview mirrors, and not everyone can turn their heads without veering out into the road, an aftermarket rearview mirror can be a huge asset.
In the midst of our recent map reprint, we not only updated services and made minor route changes, we also altered this batch of maps to show where the Adventure Cycling Route Network coincides with the U.S. Bicycle Route System.
How would you rate your experience as an Adventure Cycling member? Once each year, we put together an online survey for our members in an effort to hear about their cycling interests and preferences, and to get feedback on Adventure Cycling’s programs, publications, and resources.
