A short (3 hour approximate) section was added to the route in western Quebec. Some fun double track trails with a hand drawn ferry near the middle of the section.














One last short section in Ontario for me to go and redop the gps file for as it proved wrong by people pre riding...winter is not far away in these parts..sadly.

The writeups are taking a bit longer than expected but are being worked on as fast as time permits

I expect by the end of the year that the complete route will be available for download and the route descriptions will be written up and available for viewing.

Cheers

Finished the TCAT you say?

Thats great to hear I am so working on this. My friend is talking about the possibility that him and his wife are driving across Canada. I was thinking that maybe i could get them to do a few day rides back and forth the country maybe.

Fantastic , great job gentlemen.
Now I know where I'll be riding next Summer.

Any long tech sections that a KTM 990A ridden by a
experienced off road rider can't get through ?

I'd like to ride my 690 but it's a long ride to Eastern Canada from Idaho.

I'd say a well sorted 990 would be a good match for the route

Beers on me when you make it to Ottawa

My hat's off to all of you guys'n'gals who put in such a monumental effort to get this thing from concept through to completion. Wow. Just wow. I came across this thread courtesy of CMGOnline and have read all 161 pages of it. (That was kind of an epic journey in itself.) I've always been a sportbike kinda guy, but this thread has seriously got me hankering to try the TCAT or at least sections of it. F800GS, anyone?

Epic, guys. Epic. Thanks for a great read and all the planning of what could be the definitive adventure ride.

Thanks for the kudos. Currently transcribing Ross's maps into gps files. Won't be much longer before gps and maps are ready for download

Pecking away at getting the route descriptions posted as well (very time consuming).

Still aiming for the end of the year to have everything finished....on the home stretch now

Shouldn't take too long, it's basically a straight line

ROTFLMAO

I gotta say, the BC section of the TCAT is about the greatest thing I've ever seen. If the photos in this thread do the BC segment even 10% justice to what it's like to see IRL.... Wow.

Sweeet !!!!! Really looking forward to putting a GPS track into my GPSmaps and riding the route. Not looking so much to the earful from the wives of my friends, for taking my friends out and riding it. ...

The BC Mainland route description has been posted. Slowly but surely we are getting there. Once all the route descriptions are complete we'll make the gps files and maps available for download

Definitely not complaining as it will be a great way to get to AB from here in Vic.

The kudos need to go to Ross, aka Manxman, as he created this section of the TCAT

I, like you, can't wait to ride it
