My Own Route Planning Guide

I saw a Route Planning Guide on BikePacking and I realized that some of it I use and a couple of things I will add. The rest I will look at after a couple of trips and see what I could have done better.

First off, I love the Delorme’s Atlas and Gazetteer series of maps and have them for Washington and Oregon.

Then I really think OpenCycleMap is my next favorite along with RideWithGPS.

My new one to try will be BikeMap and I will let you know how it goes.
