GDT Bike Route Maps
Murray Castle on 12/25/06
Used these in 2010 to navigate from Calgary to Antelope Wells. Must have them again for the 2013 ride (Suzuki 400). Maps provide excellent detail, are waterproof, tough and dependable. Teamed together with GPS (US topo series loaded), navigation proved easy, in spite of the involved route-finding sometimes necessary. Forest fires caused us to reroute - again the maps & GPS provided all the info we needed. The GDT covers a lot of empty country - all glorious but largely unpopulated so can't ask directions. All maps are important: Adventure Cycling Association GDT maps are indispensable.
The Most Excellent Divide

Used the maps, combined with GPS coordinates, to ride the GD on dual-sport motorcycle. Excellent combination of information. The book offered good supplemental information.
Don't leave home without it!

Indispensable resource for anyone thinking of cycling the GDMBR. Besides the route map and cues, services directories and elevation profiles assure that you have all info needed for a successful trip.

I have ridden the GDMBR until Cuba (NM)between Aug 15th and Sept 14th. I really would like to encourage people who hesitate to ride this trail to do it! What an adventure! Regarding the maps, the maps sold by the ACA are a precious tool that help to find your way easily. They are really usefull and solid...you cannot expect a better quality.

Planning a motorcycle trip down the divide this coming Sept.. Lots of references to this map set on the internet. I am the official route planner for my group so I was hoping the maps would be informative, and accurate. Got my wish and then some. Good stuff. Very glad I ordered these. Lots of info. Nicely laid out. Route is clearly marked, in addition the narative is to the point and easy to follow.
You would be crazy NOT to have these with you no matter what you ride.
Good Work ACA!!
Very good maps with just one drawback
A customer from Germany on 10/5/11
The maps are very detailed with a lot of information around the route.
A little disappointment for me is the fact that there is no UTM coordinate system on the maps. Maybe a new feature for upcoming editions. Please keep it in mind!

These ACA maps are accurate, easy to follow and overall there is very little that could be done to improve them. I wish the set included the Canadian Section, because failing to read the fine print I received the maps without it and had to order it rush delivery on Friday before I left for Banff on following Monday!
A customer from Vancouver Canada on 9/11/12
I did the GDR on a motorcycle from the south to the north. Glad I had the map set for reference even though my GPS had my routing on it for navigation.
Envied the folks who have the time to do it on bicycles.
Would be nice to have a south to north mileage reference sheet if a separate map set is not practical.

I have a lot of planning to do to be able to do this ride and the maps have been very helpful. The detail is very good and the ability to see the services at each location is critical. The maps have given me the confidence to pursue a dream not possible without them.
