What does it all mean, this numerically quantified bluster from the ACA and the USBRS? In short: better bike touring in more of the United States.
So, what is the USBRS? Short version: a national network of officially recognized, numbered, and signed bicycle routes, oriented toward supporting bike travel by adding rider safety measures and promoting tourism. Created with public input, U.S. Bicycle Routes help cyclists navigate through cities, counties, or states.
The information is laid out to riders relatably via route descriptions and maps. The website is easy to navigate, and the bike route designations are as simple as the numbers on Interstates.
