Cycling history is tough

Hi, 

While it is easy to romanticize Route 66, freeways have altered the reality. Do your homework for some of the route is now freeway. Other sections have died a slow death because a freeway diverted the traffic. Figuring out what parts, if any hold the glamour of the past, compare the route of old with current map. Also, do a search on CrazyGuyonaBike website; I would guess there are some blogs about this route.

Happy trails, Peter
