• Historical significance
• Best bike maps on earth: route, research, experience

Bicycle Route 66 does not always follow Historic Route 66. Deviations were made based on present-day conditions. The maps in this six-piece collection 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.

#2 St. Louis, Missouri – Joplin, Missouri (327 Miles)

This map section begins in St. Louis, the largest city on Route 66 between Chicago and Los Angeles. Missouri is hilly. Between St. Louis and Springfield, cyclists will encounter some bigger hills as you are riding through the northern reaches of the Ozark Mountains. The route parallels I-44 following frontage roads and flipping back and forth from either side of the interstate. Local traffic uses these roads while the majority of the through traffic will be on I-44. Officially recognized as the birthplace of Route 66, it was in Springfield that officials first proposed the name of the new Chicago-to-Los Angeles highway on April 30, 1926. Between Springfield and Joplin the route departs the Historic Route 66 corridor north of SR 96 in favor of several lesser traveled county and farm roads.
