Hello all, I’ve developed a new type of trail map for the Pittsburgh to DC ride on the GAP and C&O. They’re for sale and in stock at Golden Triangle Bike, on the Jail Trail.
Proceeds go to support Operation Safety Net, which as you probably know provides streetside medical care to homeless folks.
it’s different from the other offerings in these ways:
-uses the AAA-tripticket format
-uses a railroad-map-style to navigate the railroad-based-trail
-provides addresses and coords for support vehicle drivers
-identifies areas of low- or no-cell coverage (Verizon based)
-callouts for hazards
-drill-down maps for towns (lodging, food, camping, wifi)
-shows restrooms and porta-johns (they’re different, after all)
-shows water, food, bike shops, bike tool workstations
-shows primary and alt-routes, including the DC W&OD transition
-labels “hi-scenic value” areas for folks not riding every single mile.
-links to a customized Google map showing the same info
GoldenTriangleBike.com will have them for sale on their website, probably later this week. But they’re on sale right now at Golden Triangle.
Mods- if this isn’t ok, I’m sorry – please delete. thanks!
