Keep up the excellent work.

Will you be publishing sections of the trail as you finish them? Or do we have to wait for the completed work?

Thanks for the encouraging words Karl.
We intend to wait until the eastern half is complete before making it available. It's being designed as a long tour and not a group of short sections. A dash of offroading followed by a couple of days of gravel roads to make some mileage kind of approach. It's a WIDE country so there needs to be days where getting some miles done is required. We hope when this half is done that it will be a 20-30 day ride depending on the speeds folks ride at, weather and how many flowers they stop to smell along the way.
Of course I realize that people will choose to just ride a section or province, but we're trying our best to look at the route from a high level and to make it realistic to finish. The body and bike can only take so many days of bouncing around before they both want a break and just cruise for a few days.
