You can purchase the route sections you need from within the app. No subscriptions or complex file conversions are necessary — just download the app, purchase a route section, and start riding with confidence. PLAN YOUR PERFECT BICYCLE ADVENTURE If you are craving a long distance 4,200-mile cross-country bicycle route like the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail or a shorter 256-mile off-road adventure along a portion of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, this is the app for you. Travel confidently with at-your-fingertips cycling-specific info like elevation profiles, distance, riding conditions, location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging. REAL-TIME WIND AND WEATHER The app includes wind and weather data along the routes and severe weather warnings that include thunderstorm, flood, and fire information. PLAN YOUR OWN UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE Detailed route descriptions and service layers reveal all the beauty you’ll encounter along the way.

App Reviews

  • No accompanying map

    By Mark McGraw
    I bought the Arkansas High Country North route for $10. It’s just a purple background with no route or mapping information. Nowhere to ask for help or clarification. Wasted money and time.
  • Cannot get the app to work

    By Collin98
    Trying to create a route and the app will not let me select any points of location.
  • Not what I expected

    By qwhsjxif
    I guess this could be used in addition to the adventure cycling maps but that’d be redundant in my opinion. This is not a substitute for cue cards. Waste of $6 for map section
  • Lack of any real content. Waste of money.

    By Mr_Meseeks
    Purchased a map for the Utah Cliffs Route within this app and was given a purple line. There’s no effective route description. No road names, altitude change, previous known road conditions... $6 for a purple line. I’m going to have to match this line to something I can create on gmaps, spend a few hours, and may not even ride the correct route. Thanks for nothing.
  • Not intuitive hard to use

    By lda28
    There doesn’t seem to be any intro guide or tips to get you started. And there’s no intuitive way to search for a place and get a good bicycle route there. Not sure what the point of this app is, other than compiling park loop maps. I can get those from parks.
  • Annoyed!

    By Annoyed_Dave
    I’ve had this app downloaded for about 15 minutes- I’m still trying to figure out how to use it. But the box “please rate this app” has popped up about 10 time already. I have no basis yet to rate this app. But basically I’m just annoyed. Can you PLEASE let me use it for a little while so I can figure out if I like it?
  • Difficulty locating local routes

    By finds local routes?
    Seems to only offer standard catalogue of long routes and not thousands of routes local routes triggered by location setting. Disappointing if that is the case because that’s what a traveling cyclist is seeking epic local rides without stopping at local bike shop to inquire
  • Where did riding conditions go?

    By Gail3028
    Been using for the last month. Like the app, but suddenly lost riding conditions. Fortunately I read a head a little and a local reminded us of a section of 94 to stay off of. Also, elevation is way off on some routes which has made planning a little difficult. Will send examples later.
  • Bad app, great data.

    By jeremykitchen
    The data is the only reason you might want to get this app, and then you’d quickly realize that the data is the only useful thing. The app itself is extremely basic, to the point where you will definitely need another tool, and then you might as well have just bought the gpx files from the website. You can’t change map tiles. Google’s street maps and that’s it. You can’t customize the route at all or export it for use in another app. You can’t add your own data. One nice feature I guess is the elevation profile viewer, but that’s not worth buying this app for alone, and there’s no real reason otherwise to buy it over just the data. Additionally, and why I’m here, the app begged me several times in the first few minutes of using it (I hadn’t even found the map catalog yet) for an App Store review. Knock that garbage off. TL;DR just buy the data and use literally any other mapping tool you might want to use. It’s the same price.
  • Needs to be fleshed out

    By Dfree617
    I agree with others that this app needs to incorporate Google’s biking layer to fully understand the route and the nearby options. Turn by turn directions are also a must. Finally, I live near a former campground in Northern Michigan that was sold and now a developer is putting up a BnB, but there was no way that I could see to pass this information along to ACA or to fellow travelers. A note-taking function might also be helpful for me incorporate trail knowledge learned along the way. On the plus side, I like being able see the route, the elevation, and points of interest.
