As far as I can tell, there is no rhyme or reason to the colouring. They are all moto tracks, mostly "good" roads and/or routes.

I deciphered these tracks last year. They are a combination of OFTR dual sport rides, personal rides and a two day rally.
All of which are 7 or more years old. You need a few hours to pick the pieces apart and understand them.
Using the Toponav-Ontario map in Garmin Basecamp, most of the roads become obvious.

Its a big file (17mb) of tracks all in one file. It has lots of Ontario. Not sure who Michael is, he's been around!

If someone took the time to prune it please post the files on this thread.
GPS noob here. Actually I don't have a GPS yet, but was trying to view this file on my computer. I tried QuakeMap but couldn't get it to work. I've tried GPX viewer, but the file was too big. Does any one know of a program that will allow me to view these tracks on my PC?

I am putting together a database of ontario gpx files for dual sporting. If anyone has interesting loops please send it to me with comments and date you last rode it. I will add them to my pile and share here.

Save it as a .gpx file.

EDIT= Ok so I have trouble following directions. Right click the link, save as,...works perfectly. Thanks again keener.

Thanks for posting this keener - can you offer me a tip though. I am also having trouble utilizing the file. When I click your link it automatically opens your file as a text document. If I save it as a .gpx, and then hover my mouse over the downloaded file name MICHAEL....gpx it still says that it is a text file.
I am using Google Chrome on Windows 7. I have tried importing the file to Google Earth with no success...feeling kinda silly here

It is a txt file.

You need something like Basecamp or Mapsource, or loading it into some other program to read it.

It you have Basecamp or Mapsource and you can't get it to load there, look at the the program assigned to the .gpx file extension and make sure it is a mapping program.

You must be using Windows. By default windows hides the file extensions. So you may be changing the name to whatever.gpx while the extension is still a text file. (whatever.gpx.txt)

Click on the link, you should see the content of the file in your browser, then go to File > save as.. Or press ctrl+s and save the file with extension .gpx

Having said that regardless of the extension of the file, you would be able to load it into basecamp.
