Adventure Cycling Route Network

As mentioned earlier, we’ve mapped out 46,846 miles of bicycle routes in North America, and our Adventure Cycling Route Network is only going to grow from there. Members get up to 30% off Adventure Cycling route maps, so depending on how far you want to ride, this discount could pay for your membership on it’s own.

Cyclosource

Like anything in life, bicycle touring is a lot easier when you have the right tools. Whether you tour with panniers or frame bags, you’ll find it at Cyclosource ... along with apparel, tools, accessories, and camping gear. Join Adventure Cycling in January, and we’ll give you a $10 head start on your order.

Bicycle adventures don’t have to drain your vacation time. If you have a free weekend, the possibilities are endless. Take a gander at our micro-adventure spin off, BikeOvernights.org. With short adventures categorized by state, you might find a ride you can emulate in your area. You can also do a trip of your own, and post it for others to see.

Hello Roger, A staff member here who just moved from Florida says to avoid the main roads and try to connect the many local trails and bike paths. I would look at Google Maps, cycling mode, and see what you can come up with. This interactive map shows our route network: https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/interactive-network-map/

Unfortunately, our USBRS map only has routes on Florida's east coast. Good luck!
