Looking to do 60-80 miles or more on some days. Camping and cooking via the Trans Am route and going off onto a different route near the desert section . East to west similar to the bikecenntial route. Open to taking a different route as well as I want to visit all the states eventually. Anyone with tips and personal experience is welcome :)

A bicyclist was traveling with me on Amtrak's Southwest Chief April 15-17 from Chicago to Los Angeles. He told me he planned to follow historic Route 66 back to Chicago for six weeks, hoping to average 60 miles per day. He had maps from this organization:

Suggest you include a mobile phone in your gear to track weather, possible route closures and other information. For example, until recently the Navajo Nation imposed a lockdown because of the pandemic with the closure of certain routes and sites.

I recently traveled in the Southwest and saw bicyclists in several remote places, including some in the mountains. Suggest you get an annual National Parks Pass if you plan to visit any. See this link:

Passes usually are available at entrances to the parks. As a bicyclist you have an advantage over motorists in parks where reservations are required to use park shuttles to take you to trailheads, such as Zion National Park.
