The original 1976 BikeCentennial route that made cross-country cycling famous (Outsidemagazine calls the TransAm the "ultimate bicycle tour"). Ride through the history of the nation and experience colonial Virginia, plantations, Civil War battlefields, Abraham Lincoln's birthplace, the heartland of the country, mining towns, Old West ghost towns, Native American trails, and the Oregon Trail.For more information on this route or to print out the most up to date addenda for these maps please click here.
These maps are of superior quality. They are steeped in history about the areas you will journey through. You can plan out each day by distances and elevation changes between points of water, food, services, and lodging of all types. There are hidden gems of support all along the way too. I joked about their rugged usefulness with a Tour Divide racer in Hartsel, Colorado last Summer. We thought they would make a good rain cover in a heavy downpour and you might even be able to eat them if you became stranded without food.(Lol, don't attempt to eat the maps) Perhaps one of the greatest features of the map set is the support that Adventure Cycling puts into them. They sent me route updates before I left for my epic journey across the US. You know this great organization is behind you every mile with these maps. They also make pretty awesome fuel for your dreams.
TransAmerica Map Daydreaming
Richard Ray on 8/5/16
I was living in Missoula in 1976 working at the local radio station KGVO. I had just purchased a bicycle from Sam Braxton when Bike Centennial happened. I tried to convince the station to send me on the ride to do live radio reports. That didn't work. Now 40 years later I bought the maps of the route. I've been a member of Adventure Cycling for years, but it's only now with the maps in hand do I realize what great work the group is doing. What a resource for a rider! I'll be daydreaming and studying the maps through the long winter ahead, looking forward to finally realizing the adventure next summer.
Trams American maps
J Scott Drummond on 7/28/16
My wife and I used your maps 34 years ago when we rode the northern parks route from Missoula, Montana to Jasper, Canada. They were invaluable . We studied them and knew where we would be camping each night to reach our goal of 75 miles per day. The detailed information on the maps made it easy. Now I'm hoping to ride cross country . I'm in the process of studying them and learning what to expect. The maps are detailed with the location of all services that a biker might need plus places of interest and riding conditions. Studying the maps and reading the information has gotten me even more excited about my possible upcoming adventure.
Trans Am Maps

Excellent as usual. Having used Adventure Cycling maps before I'm not surprised. Keep up the great work!

I bought the complete set of TransAm maps. The quality is excellent: rainproof and strong. The information is detailed and looks very adequate. The elevation profile and field notes add much to a detailed and pratical preparation of the tour.What would have been nice, is a map with the whole route on it, to have an overview. But perhaps that is because I live in Holland and I am not familiar with the USA geography. Thx ACA, for providing such usefull stuff! Marleen from Holland
TransAmerica Bicycle Trail Map Set
A customer from Overland Park, KS USA on 11/3/11
Excellent detail. I would not attempt my upcoming trip from Kansas to Virginia without the guidance that these maps provide. Over the next few months I will study these maps in detail to help me mentally prepair for my cycling adventure or adventure...cycling. Catchy name...
A customer from Philadelphia, PA area on 8/3/11
Maps are great, as well as the updates. Some of the routing could be better, especially in western Virgina / eastern Kentucky area.
TransAmerica Maps -- the Gold Standard
Carl McDonald on 1/24/11
For various reasons I've gone "off route" on some of my travels with ACA maps, choosing what I thought were comparable roads. In every case, I've encountered roads with more traffic, poor shoulders, more commercial trucks, or some combination of all of these.
In short order one develops a deep trust in ACA maps that frees the mind to know they have the best routes out there already in place. Thank you for all the research and attention to detail!
