The U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is a developing national network of bicycle routes connecting urban and rural communities via signed roads and trails. Created with public input, U.S. Bicycle Routes direct bicyclists to a preferred route through a city, county, or state - creating opportunities for people everywhere to bicycle for travel, transportation, and recreation.
As of the end of 2021, nearly 18,000 miles are currently established in 31 states and Washington, DC. Many routes are signed, including US Bicycle Route 50 here in Ohio!

Since 2005, the Adventure Cycling Associaton has been proud to shepherd the growth of the USBRS. Most USBRS routes are designed for adult, experienced cyclists defined as those 16 years of age or older, with at least a few years of bicycling experience. Route conditions will vary.
