Backcountry Discovery Routes and the Trans Canada Adventure Trail are planned and organized motorcycle adventure routes in the United States and Canada. Great scenery, culture and riding is what you get on one of these free off highway routes. Jim talks to Paul Guillien and Ted Johnson about the BDR and the TCAT.
Backcountry Discovery Routes is a non-profit organization establishing and preserving off-highway routes for adventure motorcycle travel in the United States. For each route, they produce a documentary DVD, a Butler map, and free GPS tracks.
The TCAT is approximately a 15,000 km GPS trail, coast to coast in Canada. Starting in Newfoundland and ending in British Columbia. GPS files are downloadable for free by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're wondering what's been going on with our Rider Skills instructor, Bret Tkacs, well Jim caught up to him in Africa to see how his trip is going.
