As you might imagine, we get a fairly steady stream of map and route related questions. Usually they are variations on the same themes:
Which direction should I travel?
Why isn't the north arrow always up?
How do I get from point A to point B on my bike?
When should I buy my maps?
In order to help potential bicycle travelers answer these questions for themselves (saving the really tricky ones for us!), we compiled a list of the most often made queries and posted them with answers on the Routes & Maps Frequently Asked Questions page.
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.
