    @jdub look at post #18 above and click on the link that @CannonsvilleRider posted. It will take you to his most excellent resource that has MANY routes in NY and PA to choose from, now including these, all downloadable from the site. He is an ADV Superstar!

    I saw and clicked on the orange "Download GPX" at the right top of the post, and now have the .gpx file.

    Thanks all, looking forward to riding this one.

    Thank you, "ADV Superstar" sounds so much better than "A nerd with some motorcycles and a map fetish"!

    This is exciting. I have crossed much of PA on HWY6 a few times now traveling from IN to VT. Now I have a reason to add a day or two and do some interesting riding!

    @brasscycle I assume you would be OK adding all of the linked GPX files listed on Facebook today, yes? @CannonsvilleRider I wonder if you could sync up your website with the additional routes listed at the FB link below. Note that I think you will need to request to join the group to get access to the files...

    Looks like a fantastic route - kudos, guys. I know it was mentioned the route is big bike friendly, and about 20% paved. I have a F800R, not a GS. Would I be able to do part of it in dry conditions? I live a few miles off the southern PA section of the MABDR, and can handle a few of the forest roads down there - in dry conditions, obviously. Add a little precip, and I wouldn't think of trying it on my Pilot 5s.
    Thanks.

    Going to be trying this route in may/June time frame, just want to say thanks. Love that we are getting more tracks for our area. Someday would like to link them all together (mabdr, nebdr, xpa)

    I'm organizing a 2-day group ride on May 15-16 Bloomsburg to Wellsboro back to Bloomsburg if anyone is interested. Details below:

    WELLSBORO SPRING RIDE - 2 DAY GROUP RIDE
    May 15-16 2021 rain date May 22-23 2021 (only if heavy rains are forecasted for original date)
    Total distance - 367 miles
    Distance day 1 - 190 miles (brown line on the map)
    Distance day 2 - 177 miles (purple line on the map)
    Day 1
    Start time day 1 9:00 am
    Location: Buckhorn Exxon intersection of Rt44 and Rt42, exit 232 of interstate I-80.
    Day one route is 190 miles long, about 80% gravel/dirt, and features mostly smooth farm, state forest, game land, township roads with two easy technical sections, which can be ridden around.
    The surface of the roads is mostly well-groomed gravel with occasional wash-outs, red clay which can be slippery, greasy when wet, or dusty if dry.
    There will be 2-3 rest stops along the way, mostly at the scenic areas along the route. (Please pack your own lunch)
    Day one will end at Wellsboro, PA where we'll spend the night.
    You'll need to arrange your own lodging for the night at Wellsboro PA, there are many options available ranging from free camping to 3stars hotels.
    Day2
    Start time day 2 9:00 am
    Location: Nittany Minit Mart 133 Tioga St. Wellsboro PA, 16901
    Day two route is 177 miles long, about 40% gravel/dirt. A nice mix of forest gravel roads and scenic twisties.
    Some of the gravel roads we'll run are famous for being used in the US rally championship as a part of the STPR rally event (https://stpr.org)
    In addition we will experience great views of the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. The surface of the roads will be similar to the day one route with the addition
    of one water crossing which can be easily bypassed if needed. The ride will end at the starting point in Buckhorn PA.
    Notes:
    Trailer parking: If you need to park your trailer there are few options available at the starting point such as Home Depot, Lowes, Park and Ride,
    and few major hotels. Please call to arrange your space.
    Distance between fuel stops ~120 miles (please carry extra fuel if your bike range is less than 120 miles)
