The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Adventure Cycling Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) formalizing their 16-year partnership to expand the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) for a seamless travel experience across the United States.
The USBRS expands to include Nevada, with additional new routes designated in Missouri, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, following the May meeting of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
This year, Adventure Cycling’s Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (GDMBR) — the longest mapped, off-road cycling route in the world — is turning 20. To celebrate, bikepacker, musician, and poet Ben Weaver is cycling the full-length of the GDMBR with his instruments strapped to his bike, performing free concerts along the way.
