Description

• 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.

#5 Gallup, New Mexico – Oatman, AZ (404 Miles)

Between Gallup, New Mexico and Oatman, Arizona the country is open and semiarid; there are generally long distances between services here. Between Gallup and Chambers the route crosses the Navajo Nation and is subject to the rules and regulations of both the U.S. and the Nation. The Petrified Forest National Park offers a welcome diversion from riding the shoulder of I-40. The elevation and traffic increase between Winona and Flagstaff. Beyond there is gradual climbing across the basin for approximately 15 miles. It is followed by 9 miles of steep, narrow ascents around switchbacks to the expansive Sitgreaves Pass before winding downhill into Oatman. In Oatman you can enjoy a trip back to the Old West but don’t feed the wild burros — they‘ve been known to follow and harass bicyclists.
