Ride this iconic route, often called, “The Main Street of America,” made famous in popular songs, literature, television and movies. ‘Route 66,’ became a reality as a highway in 1926 connecting Chicago and Los Angeles. Many buildings, signage, and businesses can still be seen along this route.
So, I just finished Eastward Route 66 in Nov. 2016 and must say I was impressed with the quality of these maps.... Still, even though they are flawed a bit, I would highly recommend using the Digital version alongside them. As a first time tourer, I found the maps not only helpful in giving me directions, but helpful in anticipating the 'grades' to come. Likewise, the maps helped me better 'time' the weather (especially important going through the desert) and the highlights, riding conditions, lodging, etc., really helped me mentally prepare for the fun and work involved.
The Bicycle Route 66 Map Set is great!

From BikeCentennial to Adventure Cycling Association my wife and I have used these maps for numerous loaded tours, including the Route 66. Over the years these bicycling maps have steadily improved. They are easy to follow and read, and provide almost every conceivable bit of information that a cyclist needs to complete his or her bicycle ride on any particular ACA bike route. Well worth the money to have a relatively carefree bicycle trip.
