Map Updates and Corrections (Addenda)

Updates to Recently Released Maps

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 50,527 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 detour takes cyclists along unpaved roads on the east side of SR 83. It includes a total of 4.8 mi. of riding on SR 83. You can view the detour here: ridewithgps.com/routes/29920687

If you have purchased the digital data, the above detour is called "GD01SAlt_D19_2022" for southbound travel and "GD01NAlt_D19_2022" for northbound travel. It is named by the southbound file in the Bicycle Route Navigator app.
