Better than the book

I have to disagree with another reviewer. On my ride I found the 'Bicycling the Pacific Coast' book to be inaccurate. Almost everyone that I met on the route was using the Adventure Cycling Maps. Those that weren't were begging to borrow and copy them. There were numerous occasions where the Adventure Cycling maps routed you off the roads and onto wonderful bike paths. I recall meeting some cyclists in Arcata that had followed the book along the highway (through construction); whereas, I had followed a delightful bike path through farmland. Using the Adventure Cycling maps I took a small ferry across the Columbia River; those using the book rode across the bridge (terrifying I am told). The Advenure Cycling maps may take a slightly longer route; but, they always take you along safe roads and to scenic spots.

I find the maps hard to read and interpret. Granted, map space is at a premium. However, the route descriptions are so compact and abbreviated that interpreting them is difficult for me. Sometimes the abundant detail gets in the way of understanding the map. When I previously biked along the Oregon coast, I found the maps produced by the Oregon Dept of Transportation to be much easier to use than the Adventure Cycling map.

Excellent information source

I bought these because I am in the planning stages of riding this route. I must admit that I was underwhelmed when I received these maps in the post. Where was the protector cardω The folded bits of paper look like they would be sodden in the first rain shower of the ride. On further thought and closer inspection these are exactly the maps one would need for a multi-day tour. The absence of any protector card makes it easy to fold and refold the map as one cycles the route. Although it does not seem like it the maps mentions the paper is waterproof. The information on the maps cannot be faulted: maps of each sections, vertical scale, riding conditions and climate. It is all there to plan and execute a tour.
