PDF document map for a 9.2-mile historical bike tour through Antietam National Battlefield, “Bike Antietam Route 1 Map”

Learn Civil War history on two wheels at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland. This is a 34-page full color, printable PDF map (not GPS navigation) with photos, bicycling cues, and tips for a 9.2-mile historical tour. 

Antietam Route 1 Bike Map

No passwords or license keys! You will receive an email with a download link after completing the checkout process. Print or view on your PDF-enabled mobile device or desktop computer. (You need Adobe’s free PDF reader).

Please note: This PDF map supplements my recently published paperback guidebook (Bicycling Antietam National Battlefield: The Cyclist’s Civil War Travel Guide). The map is not the guidebook itself, available on Amazon (paid link).

Exclusive Offer for Subscribers Only

If you received an email directly from Civil War Cycling about this blog post, then at some point or another, you signed up to be a subscriber, so you are all set. Otherwise, you can subscribe at this link (but remember, this particular “free map” offer expires soon).

  2. Use this NEW shop link: www/civilwarcycling.com/shop/
  3. Note that this offer is limited to the first twenty (20) people who successfully use the PROMO CODE to get a FREE downladable copy of Bike Antietam Route 1 Map (9.2 miles, pdf)”
  4. Offer expires on on 11/20/20 or when all PROMO CODES are used (whichever is sooner).

If anything goes wrong with your shopping cart experience, you can trust me to fix it. I’m not looking to cause anyone any aggravation! Contact support@civilwarcycling.com anytime.

It’s Easy! But here is some click-by-click help:

To get your FREE map:

Step 1. Click here: www/civilwarcycling.com/shop/

Step 2. Scroll down to find this map:

“Bike Antietam Route 1 Map (9.2 miles, pdf)” $5.95

Ignore the $5.95 price. Your discount code will zero that out.

Ignore the “Pay Using PayPal” banner. Your discount code will change that to “Free Checkout.”

Step 3. Click “Add to Cart”

What if you change your mind and want to stop? Close your checkout window to abandon your cart; or click “Remove” and “Continue Shopping.”

Oh, and guess what?! A BONUS

If you want one or both of the maps for a biking excursion to Antietam from the C&O Canal Towpath, you can add these PDFs to your cart as well (also FREE today):

“C&O Canal Route 2, South to Antietam Map (pdf)” $5.95 (FREE with code)

“C&O Canal Route 3, North to Antietam Map (pdf)” $5.95 (FREE with code)

What if you want FREE maps for an Antietam excursion from the C&O Canal Towpath? Then click “Continue Shopping,” find the map, click “Add to Cart.” Do that for both maps, if you want. Woa! The price total could add-up to $17.85 USD. To zero that out, proceed to Step 4 to add your PROMO CODE.

Step 4. Click “ADD PROMO CODE”

Enter Promo Code: makeover2020

What if your discount code is rejected? Abandon your cart. Please do NOT pay. Contact me at support@civilwarcycling.com and describe what happened. I cannot make 1,000 exceptions—BUT if, for example, you are customer #21 and the only person whose code got rejected, gosh, I’m certainly going to fix that for you.

And Remember: This promo code will only work for the Antietam and C&O Canal excursion maps. If you want to buy any Gettysburg maps in this same transaction, that should be possible to do.

Step 5. Click “Apply”

You will notice a slight delay as your screen refreshes.

If you only added the Antietam and C&O Canal maps, then you should see that your Total is 0.00 USD.

What if you accidentally added maps that are not part of this discount offer? Click to “Remove” those products from your shopping cart. Or if you decide to buy those maps, click “Pay Using PayPal” and use PayPal’s screens for payment by credit card, debit card, or PayPal account—and of course, skip all of the the “Free Checkout” steps below.

Step 6. Click “Free Checkout”

Again, your checkout will be FREE only if you meet the terms of this offer, which I describe above. Do not pay for anything that you do not want to pay for!

Step 7. Enter Your Email and Name

Civil War Cycling needs your email address so that we can email you a download link to the PDF map. (You will get one email per product that you ordered). You can read more about Civil War Cycling’s Privacy Policy, here.

Step 8. Click “FREE CHECKOUT”

Watch the wheel spin and then you will see an order confirmation that has a green Download button. Don’t click that button yet. Read on…

If you are using your phone, it is probably best not to click Download, because Civil War Cycling’s PDF maps are very large (and have you installed Adobe PDF Reader on your phone?).

Instead, I recommend that you check your email from a desktop computer (or whatever device or computer with which you read PDF files). There’s no rush. You have up to 5 days to download the file before the download link expires. Just click the download link in the email that you receive.

Step 9. Check your email. Download your FREE map.

You will a Thank You email with an Invoice ID and link to your order details. You will also receive one email per PDF map in your shopping cart—that is where you will find the download link to get your PDF map.

You will need Adobe’s free PDF Reader to view or print the PDF.

Thank you!
