Description

The Bicycle Route Navigator app features nearly 47,000 miles of awe-inspiring, well-established bicycle routes and 100+ maps to choose from. You can purchase the route sections you need from within the app. No subscriptions or complex file conversions are necessary — just download the app, purchase a route section, and start riding with confidence. PLAN YOUR PERFECT BICYCLE ADVENTURE If you are craving a long distance 4,200-mile cross-country bicycle route like the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail or a shorter 256-mile off-road adventure along a portion of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, this is the app for you. Travel confidently with at-your-fingertips cycling-specific info like elevation profiles, distance, riding conditions, location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging. REAL-TIME WIND AND WEATHER The app includes wind and weather data along the routes and severe weather warnings that include thunderstorm, flood, and fire information. PLAN YOUR OWN UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE Detailed route descriptions and service layers reveal all the beauty you’ll encounter along the way. You can plan each day to include various excursions and scenic stops such as waterfalls, hot springs, lakes, or local art museums. TAP TO CALL AND REVIEWS One tap to call ahead for a campsite, check lodging availability or connect with a nearby bike shop. Use embedded Google search for even more services and reviews. NO CELL COVERAGE? NO PROBLEM Download the basemap to your device so it’s available offline without a cell signal. BEST LONG AND SHORT-DISTANCE BICYCLE ROUTES AVAILABLE Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available. This app serves as an excellent companion to our paper maps. The Adventure Cycling Route Network features rural and low-traffic established bicycling routes through some of the most scenic and historically significant terrain in North America.

  • Bad app, great data.

    The data is the only reason you might want to get this app, and then you’d quickly realize that the data is the only useful thing. The app itself is extremely basic, to the point where you will definitely need another tool, and then you might as well have just bought the gpx files from the website. You can’t change map tiles. Google’s street maps and that’s it. You can’t customize the route at all or export it for use in another app. You can’t add your own data. One nice feature I guess is the elevation profile viewer, but that’s not worth buying this app for alone, and there’s no real reason otherwise to buy it over just the data. Additionally, and why I’m here, the app begged me several times in the first few minutes of using it (I hadn’t even found the map catalog yet) for an App Store review. Knock that garbage off. TL;DR just buy the data and use literally any other mapping tool you might want to use. It’s the same price.

    I agree with others that this app needs to incorporate Google’s biking layer to fully understand the route and the nearby options. Turn by turn directions are also a must. Finally, I live near a former campground in Northern Michigan that was sold and now a developer is putting up a BnB, but there was no way that I could see to pass this information along to ACA or to fellow travelers. A note-taking function might also be helpful for me incorporate trail knowledge learned along the way. On the plus side, I like being able see the route, the elevation, and points of interest.
  • How many times do I need to buy the same map?

    I bought most segments of Rte66 in the other Rte 66 App from Adventure Cycle. What is different about this app?

    I had bought a few sets of paper maps so I don’t want to pay again. Based on the little sample map I am unimpressed. I may be missing something because I was just playing for a bit

    A great start. Both in and out of an ACA route map it needs the option to get to the standard Google maps ability to add the Biking layer to show all bike paths and lanes in the area. It would also be nice to have the wind feature outside of an ACA map as well as the other points of interest options based on Google. Within an ACA map the option to show a split pane with turn by turn directions like the paper maps would be nice. Overall a very good start and as a long time ACA member I applaud the effort.

    The reason I got this app, along with buying the digital maps, was with the assumption they would reflect current conditions. I’m going to ride the Pacific Coast, but the app offers no assistance in detours around the mud slide areas south of Big Sur on PCH. Also, can’t figure out the points of interest. Just get the paper maps. The app doesn’t help.
