    I put a bid on it and then someone else bought the slot for $2K. I was bummed. I hope whoever bought the slot shares the route with us.

    Thought I read in terms of signing up that route disclosure was not allowed.
    And even though riding the total distance....doesn't mean the final route is determined and set in stone. I'd imagine they sit down after the scouting trip and look at all the combinations to finalize the route.
    Least that's the way I'd do it.....

    There’s always the fine print...

    We have so much good riding up here. I can ride from my place in WMass to northern VT and touch very little pavement. I’m just starting to explore NH but their ATV trail and camping restrictions make it harder to wander.

    You didn't read it before putting a bid in?

    Easy Scootac. Yes I read it and all the requirements including skill level. My comment on sharing route details was tounge in cheek.

    I’m just anxious to have the route up and rideable. It will draw some new riders to the area whom I’ll be happy to meet.

    Looking forward to seeing where this leads, and how much of it I've done.

    Just got work it's next up in line...this year.
    WYBDR is next year.

    Our Northern Mid- Atlantic map is a top priority too.

    ...so some time this year the scouting group will ride the BDR and then late January/February of 2020 the .gpx, map and movie will be released.

    Start making next year's riding plans!
    Even connect the MABDR and NEBDR for a monster big ride.

    After that I suspect it will be a few years before the SEBDR is created.

    We move west to Wyoming and then there is still Montana, Oregon, Nor Cal, Ozarks and others.

    I’m pretty excited for the Ozarks BDR. There is some great riding down there.

    Word is the NEBDR will be more challenging than the MABDR.
    Looking forward to see what they come up with.

    Sweet.
    I might need to head back to my old hood - Delaware - and round up some of my back East peeps.
