Adventure Cycling Maps
Adventure Cycling's Routes & Mapping Department carefully links together rural roads to create low-traffic bike routes through some of the nation's most scenic and historically significant terrain. This bicycle route network was started in 1976 with the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail. Since then, it has blossomed into an awe-inspiring network of 38,158 miles.

North Lakes Route

Adventure Cycling LogoEscanaba, MI, to Mackinaw City, MI (153.5 mi.) to Monroeville, IN (534 mi.)
This route is very pleasant to do if you like biking through hardwood forests, lakes, and farmlands. The route is generally rolling and one of Adventure Cycling's easier routes to ride. There are no dramatic climbs over mountain passes. This is not to say that there are no steep climbs, but difficult climbing is not the general terrain of this route.

Lake Erie Connector

Adventure Cycling LogoLuther, MI, to Fort Erie, ON (482 mi.)
The Lake Erie Connector is intended primarily as a shortcut that saves 244 miles between the North Lakes Route near Luther, Michigan, and the Northern Tier Route at Fort Erie, Ontario. It also connects to the Northern Tier Route across the western end of Lake Erie at Sandusky, Ohio, and enables a variety of loop rides in the lower Great Lakes region.

BikeWise

bike wise logo
bikewise.org
is a place to learn about and report bike crashes, hazards, and thefts. By sharing our experiences with each other, and with researchers and relevant agencies, they aim to make biking safer and more fun. You can help by adding your reports.





  • Crashes: It's estimated that 75% or more of all crashes go unreported. We believe that by gathering detailed information on how and why crashes happen, we'll be able to ride smarter. Also, we hope that knowing where crash hotspots are will help us to identify issues with traffic behavior and road design.
  • Hazards: How many times have you ridden past a dangerous sewer grate or overgrown vegetation and wished there were someplace to report it? Now there is. We aim to not only collect hazard reports, but to pass these on to the appropriate authorities.
  • Thefts: Tracking where and how bikes get stolen is a key part of making preventing thefts. We're currently working on other pieces of this system, so that if your bike does get stolen, you have a better chance of getting it back.
