The Adventure Cycling Route Network is a system of scenic and bicycle friendly routes that criss-cross North America. Their maps are great for planning a tour, but how do you get on a route in the first place?
That's where TourStarter comes in. Enter your location and TourStarter will find the nearest point on any of Adventure Cycling's 22 routes.
TourStarter finds the closest point on a route, it doesn't check to see if there's a mountain or a great lake in the way. Improving this is on the to-do list.
There might also be several points that are similar distances away from your starting point, but are nowhere near each other. You can drag the destination point around to see what your options are.
Computers aren't all knowing (yet), so the suggestion might not be the ideal cycling route. Play around the route until it's how you like it.
The routes displayed are the intersections/waypoints along the route rather than a continuous path. Higher resolution overlays would require a massive amount of data which would bog down the map.
If you ride your bike over a cliff it's not my fault. Google Maps/Earth Additional Terms of Service
