Hey EC, can't wait to ride this next spring!

Do you have a conservative estimate on how many days this ride should take?

Just stumbled upon this thread. Love the idea and all the work you've all been putting into this.

I take a yearly trip out to that area, but have stayed on the paved roads, but am now doing more "off-roading".

When you've got a chance, Error, I would love it if you could shoot me a file so that I'll be better prepared for this adventure!

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your patience guys - I should be all caught up on requests now.

A few have asked if you can run the route right now. You can run a good bit off it but you really should check the MVUM and the road closure dates before heading off. Of course there is also the issue of snow as it gets colder...
