April 25, 2013

We've made some changes in how you learn about our route network and maps, download GPS information, view route resources, and more. We've tidied up the route descriptions and added photos from the routes.

To make sure you are seeing all the special features of our maps, the Map Features have been consolidated to one page anchored by the entertaining, "How to Read Adventure Cycling Maps" video.

The GPS data is now separated into two groups: Route GPS Waypoints (still available to anyone) and Route and Services GPS Waypoints (now a members-only benefit).

In reviewing the route details, we decided to organize some of the pertinent information into separate tabs so you can see things at a glance.


Includes the breakdown of the map sections and a description of the route as well as more detailed maps.


General information about road and route conditions where you'll be pedalling.


Best times to ride, considerations such as availability of services, and equipment suggestions for some routes.


Highlights from the routes sections followed by links to supplemental route resources to make planning and navigating your trip easier.


A compilation of the most recent tweets using the hashtag associated with that route.

Let us know how these resources are working for you. We hope our efforts improve your experience navigating our pages and help you dream of your next bicycle-travel adventure.

GEOPOINTS BULLETIN is written by Jennifer 'Jenn' Milyko, an Adventure Cycling cartographer, and appears weekly, highlighting curious facts, figures, and persons from the Adventure Cycling Route Network with tips and hints for personal route creation thrown in for good measure. She also wants to remind you that map corrections and comments are always welcome via the online Map Correction Form.
