Kansas Bicycling Maps

The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) maintains the Kansas Bicycle Guide, which contains some basic information about cycling in the state of Kansas.

The centerpiece of the KDOT site, however, is the Kansas Bicycle Map, a free publication that features a detailed map of the state showing suggested cross-state bicycle routes, including such highlights as the TransAmerica Trail and the American Discovery Trail, as well as national and state scenic byways.

One of the most useful features of the map are the highway traffic counts and shoulder information. In addition, there are mileage markers so you can see how far it is between towns or turns, and town size and state parks are also denoted. The map even highlights cities with bicycle shops.

And finally, the first page of the map includes a directory of cities and counties, plus a map locating Kansas Rail-Trails

The other side of the map provides a list of list of state parks and the amenities each supplies, an overview of Kansas Cycling Laws and bicycle safety tips, plus detail maps of selected Kansas communities showing bicycle routes, bike lanes, and bike paths.
