Riding Ebike along 66 Route through Americana - Romatlink

If your idea of a perfect electric bike road trip involves scenic, winding roads far away from people, cities, and cars, Route 66 might not be for you. But if you’re a fan of American history, kitschy roadside attractions, classic neon signs, mid-century architecture, Indigenous heritage and culture, and talking to friendly locals, there is arguably no better road trip in the world than driving the Mother Road. 

For more than 50 years, motorists have travelled along the legendary U.S. Route 66, commonly known as Route 66 or the Mother Road, from Chicago, Illinois, to the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California. Now it's the bicyclists' turn.


What is Route 66? 

Route 66, also known as the "Mother Road," is one of the most famous highways in the United States. Stretching approximately 2,448 miles (3,940 kilometers) from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, Route 66 was established in 1926 as one of the original highways in the U.S. Highway System.

From Adams Street across from the Chicago Art Museum in Illinois, Route 66 travels through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Arizona, New Mexico, and California.
