Adventure Cycling Association and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) recently announced that AASHTO has approved 2,141 miles of new U.S. Bicycle Routes (USBRs) in five new states: Vermont (226.7 miles), Georgia (160.8 miles), Indiana (610 miles), Kansas (487 miles) and Arizona (573 miles).
The U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) now encompasses 11,053 miles of routes in twenty-three states and the District of Columbia. It is a developing national network of officially recognized, numbered, and signed bicycle routes that connect people, communities and the nation.
Currently, more than 40 states are working to develop route corridors into official U.S. Bicycle Routes to be approved by AASHTO at their spring and fall meetings. Eventually, the USBRS will exceed 50,000 miles and be the largest official cycle route network on the planet.Tweet Print
