Route 66 Road Atlas. ITMB. The 'Mother Road' of the USA is one of the most famous highways of the world, ranking in importance with adventure highways such as the Karakorum. When the highway was developed in the 1920s, America was just discovering the automobile and long-distance roads were visionary. This road assumed monumental significance in joining the western half of America to the more developed East. Initially a dirt track, it was paved as a massive 'make work' project during the Great Depression, and millions of destitute Americans moved along it to reach California and, hopefully, future prosperity. During WW2 and the Korean War, it was the route of preference to move large numbers of troops to training camps and embarkation points. Today, it has been replaced by super-motorways, the US Interstate system, but large portions of original highway remain, as well as many buildings from the early days of travel. Immortalized and romanticized by several movies, a TV show, and various songs, Route 66 symbolizes everything that means AMERICA.
This atlas shows the route from its origins in Chicago, through Illinois and other states to California and its terminus in Santa Monica. Not only is the route followed and filled in with capsule comments about attractions en route, it includes all parks, historic sites, and attractions within reasonable driving distances from Route 66. This is the only highway in the world to have its own atlas. It is beautifully arranged and very detailed. It covers the entire 2,400 miles of the Route and includes many detailed city plans of urban areas along the highway. As a bonus, the Las Vegas and San Diego urban areas are included; 64 pages, printed on paper, saddle stitched. Center-stapled soft-cover atlas.

Lewis & Clark Trail Route
Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail. Adventure Cycling Association. 4,618 miles. Since 1998, Adventure Cycling Association has been compiling a new and ambitious set of bicycling maps following the route of Lewis and Clark. The Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail was born of a desire to offer bicyclists a way to celebrate the bicentennial anniversary of the Corps of Discovery's journey, which began in 1804.
The Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail's 4,618 miles cross nine mountain passes, pass through four national parks and monuments, overlook dozens of rivers in addition to the Missouri and the Columbia, and promise you views of bison, elk, deer, antelope and other wildlife. The Trail will be the best possible way to experience the magnificent landscapes witnessed by Lewis and Clark: all of the sense of wonder, all of the adventure, but a lot less inconvenience and hardship.
Our main 1804 westward route of Lewis and Clark is 3,254 miles in length, but overall the maps will cover 4,618 miles. The maps have been divided into eight sections covering both the westbound and eastbound routes taken by the Corps. There will be some mountain biking options available. Services are sometimes few and far between, making this one of our most challenging routes.
