Plan your route

The Adventure Cycling Route Network features more than 44,000 miles of cycling routes throughout North America. While many of their routes are long-distance oriented, Adventure Cycling's maps come in approximately bn 350-mile sections and can be used for shorter excursions. Check out the interactive network map.

The U.S. Bicycle Network (USBRS) has over 11,000 designated bicycle routes available to ride and more being added every year. Use this handy USBRS interactive map to help plan your ride. The map also includes roll-on service options from Amtrak. Eventually, U.S. Bicycle Route System will give you the ability to ride an officially numbered and signed bicycle route from your backyard to anywhere in the United States. When complete, the USBRS will encompass more than 50,000 miles of routes and create amazing new opportunities for cross-country travel, regional bicycle touring, and commuting by bicycle. This developing bicycle route network will not only create better riding conditions and more visibility for cycling across the country, it will also grow bicycle tourism and local economies with very little investment.
