You can expect heavy traffic leaving Richmond, though for the remainder of the route in Virginia you will be on predominantly rural roads. These roads wander through tobacco and peanut fields over slightly rolling country. The route becomes more level in North Carolina. The beach access roads north of Wilmington will be busier during tourist season and on weekends. The Outer Banks Alternate is 78 miles longer than the main route. Wind is an important riding factor on the exposed Outer Banks. The inland route is more sheltered, and should be used during stormy weather.

Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
