I get emailed a lot of different questions from riders who stumble across this site so I thought it might be a good idea to create a post that answers a couple of them!
1. Where are the trails? Where is the TMAT trail? Do you have other trails or maps?
From the main page on http://www.MinneADV.info click on Trails>TMAT from the main menu. That will take you to a page with a link to the Central route and the Eastern Route. Follow those links and you will be directed to a website (dualsportmaps.com) that hosts the map. You can zoom in and out and scroll all around to see the route. If you want to download a .GPX file of the route for your GPS you can do that by creating an account on that site (Free!) and clicking the download button.
You can also click on the Trails>Other Trails link to find a list of other designated dual sport trails.
We do not have a printed map at this time, but that has been asked for and is in the works.
2. Do you organize rides? How do I meet other riders?
Riders from all over Minnesota organize group rides and “Meet and Greets” all the time. This website attempts to organize them in a way that is easy to find. Click on the Events link from the Main Menu to see a calendar of all the events. For example there is a “Tech Day” in April that guys from the tcdualsport mailing list do every year, and some folks from the advrider.com discussion board have a ride scheduled in May near Akeley. They are both on the Calendar.
You can also become a member of “MARs” (Minnesota Adventure Riders) by filling out this form. You will then have access to our forum where you can interact with other riders. Membership is currently free! You just need an active AMA membership number.
