U.S. Bicycle Route System

U.S. Bicycle Corridor Map

The United States is a big place and because of its size it is a difficult country to navigate by bicycle.  While the distances remain large, a major effort resulted in a national corridor plan this May. Working together,  the Adventure Cycling Association, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Federal Highway Administration, League of American Bicyclists, various state departments of transportation and other organizations mapped out priority and alternate corridors that connect all parts of the country for bicyclists.  Except for some routes that have already been designated as Bicycle Routes, the corridors are 50-mile wide bands within which roads need to be identified that will eventually be designated as Bicycle Routes.

The network totals 50,000 miles. So far, 8,992 miles of Bicycle Routes have been established in 18 states: Alaska, Florida, Kentucky, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington and the District of Columbia.  These roads now have, or will soon have, signing to help you find your way as you explore the USA.

For more details,  the Adventure Cycling Association has answers for all your questions and helpful aids to get you on the road.
