Bicycling the TransAm Trail: Virginia to Oregon/Washington
Adventure Cycling Association
Follow the TransAm Trail with Stephanie and her husband. This guide contains extensive current recommendations for both motels and campgrounds, restaurants, bicycle resouces and daily itineraries for 11 states. It is both lightweight and fully indexed to Adventure Cycling maps. By Stephanie Ager Kirz. SB 224p *New 4th Edition*
this book is a good read and helped me get an idea of some things to expect. I thought it would be more clear about the route, where to ride, better directions, etc. Yes, i wanted cue sheets which it does not in any way provide but more directions would have been nice.
Don't buy if your going west to east

Do not buy this book if you are traveling west to east. It's best feature is the daily daily distance planner and you can get yourself in big trouble trying to interpret it from the wrong direction. It's worse than useless.
Review of Bicycling the TransAM
Ed Schultz on 8/16/13
I just completed a ride from Carbondale, Illinois to Seattle, Washington using Bicycling the TransAM. While some of the information is a bit dated, the book proved to be an extremely useful supplement to the ACA Map set especially for daily distance planning. It was especially useful from Lewiston Idaho to Seattle. This part of the ride was not covered by any maps available from the ACA. Just one observation/criticism- In several cases, especially Washington State, the book mistakenly refers to State Routes as US Highways. I hope this is corrected if a new edition is printed.
Great supplement to Adventure Cycling Maps

Very useful aid to following the traditional TransAm route, especially for alternatives to camping. Also has informative comments about the countryside and cities and terrain.
