just a quickie:
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, working with The Adventure Cycling Association plus some other groups, have approved a plan for a nationwide network of bicycle routes.
Working from a bewildering tangle of existing roads, planners mapped a web of corridors where the national bicycle system should go. They considered traffic volume, terrain, amenities and ways to link together lightly traveled byways, secondary roads, urban trails and already established transcontinental bicycle routes.
How. Cool. Is. That?
I must be getting old. I really wanna BIKE these routes. Who's with me?
