About Us

The purpose of the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is to facilitate bicycle travel on appropriate roads, paths and highways over routes that are desirable for interstate bicyclists. A route should form continuity of available roads through two or more states connecting and traversing areas of scenic, cultural, and recreational interest.

Note: Information on how to complete and submit an application for a U.S. Bicycle Route can be found on the home page of this website.
