I am creating a bicycle route data using a road dataset.  My road dataset ID field does not follow (in order) with my bicycle route.  I'm wanting to create an ID field that traces my route and orders the ID by that route from start to finish.  How can I best do this?  I would prefer not to type in manually as there is more than 100 segments and re-typing in the ID numbers manually would take some time.  Thanks for your help.
