If you are planning a bike tour, be sure to get the most recent map updates and corrections for your route by selecting the route, and the appropriate section(s), from the drop-down menu below.
Over time maps become less useful because things change. Every year Adventure Cycling's Routes and Mapping Department create map updates and corrections for every map in the Adventure Cycling Route Network, which now totals 48,608 miles. With the help of touring cyclists like you, we receive updates on routing, services, camping, and contact information. Until we can reprint the map with the new information, we verify the suggested changes and publish corrections and updates here on our website.
If you have updates or corrections for a map, please submit them through our online Map Correction Form.
NOTE: Map updates and corrections only pertain to long term changes and updates. For short term road closures, please see the Adventure Cycling's Routes Temporary Road Closures discussion in our Forums.
The BC number and year on your map's cover should match the BC number and year listed here.

(Aug 2018) CAMP PENDLETON: Camp Pendleton is changing their requirements for access to the base. Beginning October 1, 2018, to ride through the base you will need to stop at the Main/Vandegrift Boulevard Visitor Center (south end of the base) to get a guest pass. You will need a valid government issued photo ID (I.E. Real ID ACT compliant driver's license, state identification card, or U.S. passport) to establish your identity and submit to a criminal background check as well as having your photograph and fingerprint taken. The Visitor Center hours are Monday to Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
If riding southbound, it makes more sense to ride the shoulder of I-5 between Las Pulgas Rd. and Oceanside (Exits 62 to 54C) avoiding the base entirely. It is about 8 miles. For safety reasons, you should exit and re-enter the freeway at the Aliso Creek Rest Area about midway through this stretch. If riding northbound, you may do the same or stop at the Main/Vandegrift Boulevard Visitor Center and see about gaining a guest pass.
If you are currently preregistered to travel through the base by September 30, 2018, you will be allowed through with that preregistration. For questions regarding base access, please call 760-763-8435.(Dec 2018)
