U.S. National and Interstate Bicycle Routes

Melanie M. Smith, Oscar McNary


The Oregon Coast Bicycle Route is an internationally celebrated route, with between 6,000 and 10,000 riders per year, but it is not recognized within the national U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS). The USBRS is not a government program but rather a collaborative project of state and local officials and nongovernmental organizations. Federal action on interstate bicycle routes has been largely symbolic and intellectual, while state jurisdictions continue to undertake most of the work of building and implementing bike routes and bikeways. Most of the federal government’s published information on national bicycle routes is directed toward local and state governments, not addressed to the general public.
