Historic Route 66 Resources
Site gives an extensive list of links to websites about historic U. S. Highway 66. U. S. Highway 66 is the quintessential historic federally numbered highway. The numerous "roadies" with a passion for "Route 66" affectionately refer to it as the "Mother Road". It was one of the original Federal Highways commissioned in 1926 along with some of its other famous newly numbered cousins such as U. S. 30 - "The Lincoln Highway", U. S. 40 - "The National Highway", and U. S. 80 - "The Broadway of America". Route 66 was not a true coast to coast transcontinental highway. Its eastern end was in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Its western terminus was in Santa Monica, California. From Illinois, it ran southwest and then mostly directly west through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The construction of the modern Interstate Highways starting in 1956 which paralleled the "Mother Road" (as I-40 and I-44) initiated the eventual demise of the old highway -- in 1985 it was completely decommissioned. Today, most of the states it traversed have signed it as "State Highway 66" or "Historic U. S. Highway 66".. U. S. 66 has been given several nicknames over the years: "The Main Street of America" and "The Will Rogers Highway".

Site gives information about the activities of the Tucson Volkssport Walking Klub which offers non-competitive family-oriented walks & hikes throughout Arizona. Volkssporting, simply defined, is a family-oriented sports and recreation program offering noncompetitive walks, hikes, bike rides and swims, and in some regions cross-country skiing and roller or ice skating. You may choose your time to start within the start/finish "window" and participate in the sport at your own pace. The club hosts about 4 to 6 one-time weekend events during the year. Most of the events are in the Tucson region. However, in recent years 1 or 2 events per year have been held in other more rural parts of Arizona. The club also offers 14 year-round walks and a year-round bike ride. Year-round events are volkssporting activities that are available any day of the year and anytime of the day from sunup to sundown. The registration sites for the club's year-round events are at businesses that are open every day of the year.
