Section 7 of the TransAm takes you out of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and onto the High Plains of eastern Colorado and western Kansas. The High Plains, where once millions of bison grazed, is now the agricultural heartland of America. Services are farther apart so you need to plan your days accordingly. The flat terrain of Kansas is made up for by its friendly residents and town swimming pools where it's great to take a break during the heat of the day. The section ends in Alexander.
I have ridden in portion six of the Adventure Cycling bicycle networks. I have always found their maps of great assistance, especially in determining daily mileage and services available in each town along the route. The paper and coloring of the maps are first rate. I don't always appreciate some of the road choices concerning grade and road signage but I have good stories and great memories connected with every mile. The TA section 7 map travels through a pretty blank space on the globe and the map reflects this. There are many sources you will use in planning a cycling adventure; these maps are the resources you should keep in your handlebar bag.

Go quality paper, detailed routes, but disappointed that it did not have the altitude profile which was what I was looking for.
