    Open to suggestions for must ride dirt roads in that map area to be added to our map. :ear Must be easy dirt and atleast 7+ miles in length and not just a lot of different roads names connected, if possible, as that name detail is hard to add. Thnx, bill

    The tedious task of editing our upcoming Southern Appalachia map begins.

    thanks :D

    our first East Coast map has been a loooooong time coming and we are very excited to be finally getting to this stage. we've been hammered with requests for years now. i'm from Delaware and know the quality of roads out your way!

    the great thing for you guys is we have improved upon or map execution a ton over the years with our western maps and thus this end product will reflect all those years of learning.

    many of you East Coast guys might not have heard of our maps but i guarantee you will be blown away with it's usefulness & detail once you get one in your hand!

    we are all over the New England now preparing for the next one.
    i'm guessing we will head back west and finish OR & WA before the 2 central East Coast maps are done however.

    don't know those but i'm sure she has done a great job for that area.
    looks she picked a small area and has great details.
    our map scale is different & will cover a much larger area (at the expense of small details like those info-maps) and utilizes our patented 3 color rating system on the frontside and travel guides on the backside. we ride all the paved roads and rate them.

    we print on hop syn plastic which is the highest grade plastic map paper available. it's the same stuff that nat geo maps are printed on and last forever.

    thanks for the interest & link!

    my gut feeling is Oregon will come after our New England map and then maybe we might jump back and finish 1 of the 2 unfinished central east coast maps. if i was betting i'd say it would be the northern central one first because of the high population of people in that riding area.

    Our South East map has entered our final editing stage.
    It's taken a little longer than we thought but it will be worth it!
    Our cartographer is doing final edits today :freaky
