Mapping the Revised Route

Wheel full 70pxI’ve spent some time working with Ride with GPS [linkie] in revising my cross-the-country route and working out final maps.  Here is the latest all-in-one map


and each of the five stages.






Wheel full 70pxStage I through IV is each 1,000 miles/1,600 kilometers,  Stage V is about 139 miles/75 kilometers.  Click on any of the map images to see a full size map.  The full size stage maps are all of equal scale to the others.  Here are links to the maps on Ride with GPS, which you can enlarge to street level detail.  You can navigate between stages directly using the linkie on the right side of the map.

  1. This is probably a stupid question from a non-bike traveler.

    Are you interested in restaurant recommendations or are you primarily planning your own meals? I know several excellent seafood places along Hwy 98 in the Florida Panhandle. The places I am thinking about are very casual. I love that route and have traveled it many times. You will be able to see a lot of the coastline.

    • Absolutely, my friend. Recommend away. I’ll be counting calories- one of the underlying purposes of this ride is to impose some discipline on my diet- but even little tiny portions of great food is still great food. Thanks!


  2. Restaurant suggestions for the Florida route:

    Jacksonville – Clark’s Fish Camp — 12903 Hood Landing Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32258. Too far away from your bike route. Maybe only for pre-trip day if you have time. Neat place.

    Florida Panhandle — These are mostly very casual and definitely not fancy.

    Mile Marker 294 — Posey’s Seafood – 1506 Coastal Hwy, Panacea, Fl. Directly on your route. My go-to place for flounder. About 5 miles before you start seeing the Gulf.

    Mile Marker 342.5 — Up The Creek Raw Bar – 313 Water St, Apalachicola, FL. Four blocks off your route. Overlooking Apalachicola River.

    Mile Marker 360 — Indian Pass Raw Bar – 8391 County Rd 30A, Port St Joe, FL. Directly on your route. Very good place since you added this excellent extension away from Hwy 98. Beautiful area. Kudos on route planning detail.

    Mile Marker 411 — Hunt’s Oyster Bar – 1150 Beck Ave, Panama City, FL. Directly on your route in Panama City(cannot believe it – beginning to think you have been stalking me in the past.) My all-time favorite heads-on shrimp and oyster eating place. Been there many times. Usually have a wait but is well worth it. Local favorite. Several other seafood restaurants very close by and on the water but I prefer Hunt’s. Sit at the bar and watch them shuck your oysters.

    Mile Marker 506 — Peg Leg Pete’s – 1010 Fort Pickens Rd, Pensacola Beach, FL. About 1 ½ miles off your route after turning on Fort Pickens Rd. On a little canal. Again, you made an excellent route choice of getting off Hwy 98 in this area. Beautiful gulf viewing.
