Bluebird,

I have the North to South route sheet. Give me a holler if you want a copy.BTW, would you be interested in doing it some Sat or Sun in October?
Could do it in one day, as long as it wasn't raining I'm guessing. Let me know. I'm in W.MA

I translated those routes to Mapsource a number of years ago as a favor to someone and didn't know they would stay posted on the MOV site for years to come. They had some errors then, and they're outdated now. Don't use them.

I recently updated them to the best of my knowledge and you can download them here:

Have fun!

Thank you, interested in opening these and adding it to the Trans Mass route.

Well, I took HelmetHead's updated routes and joined them with the Trans Mass route an came up with a nice 418 mile ride.

This looks like fun:

I was thinking of doing the same thing and then riding it round trip in a long weekend with a couple buddies.

Being completley lazy and not opening your new routes I'm probably speaking out of my ass here but... I know that the VT club had posted new routes on their site this year for their annual ride. They did some tweaking of the older route, I didn't run it this year so don't know exactly what. I do know that the central campground is no longer at Allis State Park cause the floating bridge is no longer open.

I rode route, mid August, from Conn / New York thru Mass and about 50 miles into VT (as the crow flies) Id say the route is 80-90% dirt. Mostly graded and easy. Here is a .gpx file if you can use it.

There was one spot we encountered in VT that was a bit challenging but short. You had to drop off a few small rock ledges (going north) I marked it with the waypoint "you can make it" because it looks like a logging trail but it goes thru to graded dirt again. We did it with camping gear loaded bikes and Tourances.

I rode the northern half of this route Saturday and it was fun! First off, I arrived at the first waypoint on my borrowed GPS to find a diner with another KLR and a GS parked out front. I stopped in for coffee and by sheer coincidence met the architect of the above mentioned route. He and his friend were just returning from an endurance rally that I'd been invited to weeks ago, but due to a lack of passport I couldn't play up in Quebec. Next year, I promise. They were heading home on that very route and invited me to tag along, and tag along I did! I apologize for the lack of photos, there was no stopping for the first 150 + miles!

I downloaded the routes from the BMW MOV website http://www.vtbmwmov.org/rides/ I noticed the north section of the 2009 route is different than the 2008 version and the south routes are almost exactly the same.

Does anyone know if the north route was changed because of road closures, paved etc. Or was it changed just to have a different route? If just changed for the heck of it, can anyone tell me which one is better? I'm assuming they both have something to offer. I'm planning on doing the whole ride combined with the Trans-Mass trail sometime next month.

Thanks, Scott

The 2009 route was changed because the state park that served as the rally point was closed to camping for budget reasons. The new route to Silver Lake was planned in a hurry and spent a bit too much time on pavement.

We've got new 2010 GPX files posted now that cut out unnecessary pavement and also eliminate one tricky spot where some people fell over last year.

So, the answer is that the 2010 version is the best route. 2009 is probably the least desirable.
