Changing things up a bit…

March 9, 2011

As of today this website is changing its name from “Trans-Minnesota Adventure Trail” to “Minnesota Adventure Riders”.  The URL stays the same (http//minneadv.info), the blog stays the same, and the hosting of information about the TMAT stays the same.

What changes is that the site will begin to bring you more information about meeting other riders, organizing trail rides, and in general building a better community in Minnesota for Adventure/Dual Sport riding.  So stay tuned for some more changes.

Sound good?  Sound off in the comments.  Your feedback is important!

“Cheesehead trail” now posted

March 1, 2011

For those of you wanting some guidance on how to connect from the Trans-Minnesota Adventure Trail to the Trans-Wisconsin Adventure trail your wait is over.  The Maps page now contains both a northern and southern route to the beginning and end of the Wisconsin trail.  This basically now forms a “loop” that can be followed for an epic moto-adventure.
