Kansas bicycle maps available
TOPEKA – Whether you want to see designated bike routes in 19 cities in Kansas, traffic volumes along state routes or which county routes are paved, the new 2016-17 Kansas bicycle map will help bicycle riders plan their trips.
“This map provides so much information that is specifically geared toward bicyclists,” said KDOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Matt Messina. “Its contents include bicycling statutes, safety tips, suggested routes, future projects and more all in one publication. It is a great resource for all bicyclists from beginners to extreme enthusiasts.”
The highways available for bicycles are color-coded by
traffic volume. No traffic volumes are shown on the map on interstate routes as bicycling on interstates in Kansas is against the law.
New features to this year’s map include the Land and Sky Scenic Byway in the western part of the state and the inclusion of 487 miles of U.S. Bicycle Route 76 (USBR 76), which was designated in Kansas last fall. Pittsburg’s city inset was also added to the back of the map.
Maps are available free of charge and can be requested by emailing mailto:email@example.com or calling (785) 296-8593. For more information on bicycling in Kansas, please visit http:// www.ksdot.org/bikeped .
