Bicycling the Lewis & Clark Trail
Category: Sports: Bicycling
Author: Michael McCoy editor
Copyright/published Year: 2003 by Adv. Cycling Assn
Description: In 1804, an expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark
departed Camp Wood, Illinois, on a journey to discover the source
of the great Missouri River and map a path to the Pacific Ocean.
Traveling by canoe, on horseback, and on foot, the Corps of
Discovery completed its mission successfully, returning safely to
St. Louis, Missouri, in 1806. Bicycling the Lewis & Clark
Trail is the cyclist's indispensable handbook to the route of
the Lewis and Clark expedition. Filled with detailed maps,
information on road surfaces and traffic, and a wealth of
historical detail, it guides the modern adventurer through the
spectacular country first recorded by Lewis and Clark.
Retrace Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's historic expedition
from the saddle of the ultimate touring machine - your bicycle.
From Hartford, Illinois (outside St. Louis) to Astoria, Oregon,
at the mouth of the Columbia River, the Lewis & Clark Trail
passes through eleven states and winds more than 3,200 miles. As
it traverses the Missouri and Columbia river basins, the trail
skirts corn and wheat fields, rolls across high prairie, descends
into deep gorges, and penetrates Pacific Northwest rain forest.
And all along the way, there are reminders of the Corps of
Discovery's epic journey.
Bicycling the Lewis & Clark Trail is a collaborative
effort by outdoor and travel writer Michael McCoy, cycling
photographer Dennis Coello, and the Adventure Cycling
Association. With this guide the staff of Adventure Cycling's
Routes and Mapping Department share their route-finding and
cartographic skills with anyone ready to pack their panniers,
climb in the saddle, and aim their bicycle westward. Inside
you'll discover: forty daily ride sections ranging from 45 to 113
miles in length, each with a route map and mileage log; details
on each section of the ride, including riding conditions,
terrain, and distance; vivid descriptions of attractions and
other points of interest; more than fifty scenic color and
black-and-white photographs. Whether you're an experienced
bicycle tourist or someone looking for a new way to explore
history, this guide will give you the information you need to
take on the challenge of cycling the Lewis & Clark Trail.
