I've ridden Rt. 66 several times.
Well, riding from SoCal through Oklahoma, Route 66 is pretty much a "Hit and Miss" proposition and not very well documented. Riding around SoCal, you can see that from LA to San Bernardino it is city streets that are not marked very well. Going through from LA east on Foothill Blvd. to San Bernardino, where the name changed to 5th St. Then up to Cajon Pass. Route 66 runs partly up from 5th St. in San Bernardino on Mt Vernon Blvd. Take Cajon Blvd. turn off just before W. Highland. It follows along I-215 but ends where I-15/I-215 meet. Route 66 is covered by this exchange. It begins at the next exit north of the exchange (Cajon Blvd.) and follows I-15 to Cleghorn Rd. It is pretty much coved until you get through Victorville. Route 66 is now called National Trails Hwy in Victorville. It goes out to Barstow. Following I-40 east, the Route 66 areas are marked (still National Trails) where to exit. The most complete of these rides is the road to Amboy. Just make sure you have gas. It crosses I-40 at Goffs Rd. and comes back to I-40. Near Needles, it is covered by I-40. In Arizona it is marked AZ-66 out to Kingman and through Seligman. From here out through Oklahoma, It is just I-40 Business. So you will not get much Route 66 except cut offs. You may need a book that is dedicated to Route 66 to see much. It is better to "have and not need", than to "need and not have".
When you get to Missouri and Illinois, Route 66 is well marked and the Route 66 Preservation Society is hard at work saving much of the "Mother Road. I really enjoyed riding route 66. Just give it a lot of time.
