NEBDR info is out. https://ridebdr.com/nebdr/

PA/NY border to Canada. 1400 miles one way, I think.

I don't think we ever got a group to do the MABDR and that's out back yard :lol2:

The NEBDR looks like a fractal diagram gone amok - that's how it's 1400 miles from PA to Canada. Not complaining as the BDR folk do some pretty first class routing for these things. I google mapped it and from the north end to return to your van near the start of it is less than a 600 mile ride.

Yeah. I see routes like that as guides. No sense in making a 200 mile loop just to add miles or idk what. I'm sure there are must see/must ride roads, but idk.
Even the Kat route is like that. Routes are suggestions.

Bruce, when we did the TAT I got pretty good at noticing when we were routed on to gratuitous gravel. We'd pop out of the woods at a highway where the route crossed over, rambled around for 10 miles, and the popped back out on the same highway just a couple of miles away.

I'd be surprised if there's not a ride report up on ADVrider early spring and will maybe give a sense of the skipable (?) sections. Or, we could just go ride it and figure it out for ourselves!

I have family in NH. Dont think I can make it happen this year, but I might try and make the Vermont and NH pieces into a couple day loop.
