For some reason I'm now interested in traveling this route or what left of it....any stories about a bike trip on the route???

Been reading a lot about it and I think it would've been a blast back 30 or 40 years ago???:bikerguy:

66 is no longer a single integrated roadway. In some places it 'disappears' and you have to find it again. Last year I did ride a small portion of it in Arizona and Nevada. If you have the time to wander/search then it would be an interesting ride, for sure.

Like Deucedog said "wander and search" is what you have to do. We tried to do it in a car, but the hassle of staying on the R 66 footprint got to me. But, even close, on secondary roads will take you through some of the best of America.

I definitely agree with JP.

When you are traveling through Joplin, MO, you have to stop at Stogie's Coney Island for food. I would recommend the Junk Yard Dog w/ a polish sausage instead of a regular hot dog. Any time I am in Joplin I eat there AT LEAST 2 times a week. ( Family lives in Joplin.)

Have ridden parts of it in Texas & Oklahoma...............It'll just end on you so yeah you have to really hunt sometimes. Its no longer a maintained road from what I was told in Oklahoma..............The signs are brown meaning its labeled historic and no longer maintained which I could attest to.
