About the route:  The route was mapped in 1975 by Bikecentennial (now known as Adventure Cycling Association) for their Bikecentennial ‘76 event, when more than 4,000 cyclists rode part or all of the route across the U.S. to celebrate the nation’s bicentennial. The TransAm remains the most popular route in the Adventure Cycling Route Network which now includes over 41,000 miles of cycling routes.

IT IS A 100% PAVEMENT ROUTE.
