Thanks for the kind words and interest.

A few "mistakes" were pointed out on the gps files (which is awesome to have others scrutinizing the files...THANKS!)

R1.1 corrected a faulty line in BC near Adams Lake.
R1.2 corrected a faulty line in Quebec NE of Chicoutimi

R1.3 is being worked on and will have a more acurate track file for a few areas.

We released the gps files so that folks could begin planning their trips, the changes being made are small (more for accuracy than anything else) and don't change roads, trails, etc the route takes so having these early files should be pretty good for trip planning.

We highly encourage you to ensure you have the latest version before you head out on a trip. We'd also encourage folks to email us with any discrepancies they find while riding the route. A few sections were drawn using satellite maps...this is problematic is some areas as foliage blocks the view and some areas of Canada are pretty low resolution. The bulk of the route files were made while riding and recording on a gps, some were transcribed from paper maps. 100% of the route was ridden and is "doable"

Cheers and thanks again
