I look forward to the day when I can ride them all too! I live in Oregon, so thought I would ride up the WABDR in Washington, cross east on the TCAT, drop down the east coast through Maine and the ride the TPAT on my way to the South and insert as many trails as possible and use the TAT to take me back to Oregon....

I know, it's a pipe dream, but it's MY PIPE DREAM!! It might take a while to solve all the sprawling metropolis that is the NorthEast, but I know we've got riders working on it...

Thanks again for all the work you guys have done on the TCAT!

Go Ned!!!

If you ever do that ride, it would be a great report! We all need dreams and sometime they happen. The TCAT was a dream at one time.

I certainly don't call it solved, but there is a good start here.

Cabin Fever

We're still in winter out this way, everything but the lowlands is snowed in right now... Whenever some riding weather shows up we'll spend a couple days camping along the route and see how things look...

Dates sorted, part of Sask then Alberta and BC. 19 days and many thousands of kilometers. August can't come soon enough. Ottawa to the Pacific and back. Going through a set of tires every week. Prairies, badlands, mountains and rain forests.

TCAT season is almost here and I'm stoked. If you see a black 950 roaring by and it doesn't stop to say hi, it's because its on a mission

Awesome Concept

This is a fabulous idea. Just waiting for someone to actually navigate the completed route - tip to tip.
