EZ Route Selector

Note: As of 08/15/2022, all routes have been calculated to work with
Garmin City Navigator North America NT Version 2023.2 mapset

For FlyBy Week 2023 there are 31+ routes to choose from. Most are available as a printable PDF file that includes a map and turn-by-turn route instructions, and all are available as individual Garmin GPX format files.
Most routes are split into two or more parts to avoid confusion of closed loops and roads that would otherwise cross or the same road ridden in both directions.
Pt 1 of each route takes you from the hotel to the suggested lunch stop.
Pt 2 takes you from lunch back to the hotel, usually by a different path.
All routes except Short routes have gas stop waypoints at distances of 60-100 miles. 

Last minute Updates will be posted as needed during FlyBy Week.

SIMPLE routes for non-GPS utilize easily identified roads and have fewer turn instructions than other routes.
AVERAGE routes can have a lengthy list of instructions, but roads are generally well marked and easy to follow
COMPLEX routes may include roads that are poorly marked and have many turn instructions. PDF turn-by-turn instructions are provided for most of them, but a GPS with the route loaded in it is highly recommended.
OFF-ROAD routes often use dirt roads and trails that are not routeable on a GPS, therefore you must use the provided tracks for navigation. (Most of our Adventure routes are tracks only) 

Each GPX file contains TWO route versions-
1. STANDARD version with Way and Via points for Garmin zumo 660, 450, 550 and earlier models, other GPS brands.
2. TRIP PLANNER version, designated by the "TP" suffix at the end of the route name. This version uses mostly shaping points for compatibility with Garmin zumo XT, 390 and 590 series, as well as BMW Nav5 and Nav6. Be sure to use the TP version if you have one of these models or any Garmin GPS that uses the Trip Planner App to access routes. TP versions usually work best with TomTOM and phone apps as well.

NEW ROUTES FOR 2023 In addition to new routes from Norm Kern and Ron Vess, we are featuring a few New England Riders routes from Ed Conde's 2022 Marietta trip. Ed is nationally known for his expertise in GPS routing and SE Ohio is one of his favorite places to ride. 
ALL ROAD ROUTES This large collection includes a ZIP file link with all the road in a single file. Choose either GPX or PDF version.
TWISTY ROUTES feature sharp curves and elevation changes with mostly smooth clean pavement, and are preferred by riders of sport and sport touring bikes
TECHNICAL ROUTES, like Twisty routes, have sharp curves and elevation changes, but also include county roads that may contain potholes, patches, gravel on pavement, slips, etc, that may require a slower pace. They are perfect for riders of ADV style bikes, as they take you on the little back roads with the most interesting terrain and scenery.
We have added the phrase "Tech" in the names of individual route segments for some routes that have both regular and "Tech" versions contained in them.
DESTINATION ROUTES include parks and points of interest such as West Virginia's Holly River state park, Hillbilly Hotdogs, New River Bridge and gorge, Ohio's Big Muskie Shovel etc.
SHORT ROUTES- 50-120 MILES in length, are mostly based on longer routes, but shortened to be able to be ridden in 3 hours or less. They do not have lunch stops and are provided in a one part format.
TOURING BIKE-FRIENDLY ROUTES are easier for big touring bikes.
EZ NAVIGATION ROUTES FOR NON-GPS utilize easily identified roads and are designed to be followed using a simple map and fewer instructions to make navigation simple.
ADVENTURE ROUTES utilize mostly dirt and gravel roads. Routes with "EZ" in the name do not contain any single-track, steep climbs, big rocks or gullies. They are suitable for all dual-sport and adventure bikes regardless of size or tire selection. "Int" routes may include steeper up-hill and down-hill gravel grades, deeper/looser gravel and small stream crossings. "Exp" routes are more challenging and may include "hero" sections.
