Highways that are signed only as USBRs
« on: June 09, 2018, 07:55:27 PM »

While out and about today, I came across something I'd never seen before: A road whose only signed route number is a U.S. Bicycle Route. In this case, it's Mammoth Creek Road in southern Utah (a 15-mile connector between UT 14 and UT 143), which is officially Dixie National Forest Road 050 but has no such posted signage. Instead, there is this:
 


So, the question: Are there any other rural highways that are signed only as USBRs? Short stretches of streets within cities probably don't count.

It's possible that a portion of the route of USBR 76, which has been signed across Kentucky, is. The route mostly runs across state highways but I'm pretty sure there are a couple of places in central Kentucky where it's routed on county roads. One of my roadgeek goals is to drive the length of USBR 76 in Kentucky; I've driven several segments of it and have completed the portion between the Virginia state line and where it departs KY 1295 in Garrard County.

Is there somewhere a comprehensive map/list of the US Bicycle Routes? I don't think I've ever seen a sign for these in person.

Here's a high-level map of the U.S., including both existing and proposed routes. Sort of like the big map at the front of the RMcN. :)

Well, except that Adventure Cycling's proposals are wishlist items and things that they sell maps for their own profit for, some of which have never hit the state at all and seemingly not very well vetted as being a good touring route in some areas.  Whereas Rand McNally is literally a hard copy of OpenStreetMap these days.
