I was just informed that Jim Randall spent last week riding all of the routes.  Some of them had suffered winter damage and will need some modifications before being released.  All told there are over 1000 miles of road routes, so it does take a little time to get them all checked out and ready for release. 
not all that wander are lost

There are 6 street routes, 3 adventure routes and 1 dual sport route totaling just a bit over 2,000 miles. I've ridden every inch this spring to verify that they work. Yeah, I know it's a crappy job but somebody has to do it ;-) Currently Doug Pippin is double checking my work and making sure the .gpx files will be as compatible as possible with other peoples GPS receivers. One of the routes utilizes some of the Blue Ridge Parkway and we're not sure if that section is open yet; however, I will verify that on the way to Tri-Star this weekend and we should have the download page available early next week.
