Huge updates alongside this:
+ THE SUPER 8 IS NOW FREE FOR DOWNLOAD. You have to register an account with the site in order to download it; that way we can keep you updated when there are changes.
+ The XVT is available for purchase. Members of VMBA, Vermont Bikepackers chapter can download the XVT for free with a password-protected button. Current and former VMBA BP members can expect an email in the next 24 hours with the password. So: you no longer have to be a VMBA member to get the XVT, but you still have to pay for it.
+ We have waypoints! Thanks to Eli Blinn Avery and others who contributed waypoints from their rides.
I used some of yall's photos -- thanks Willapa Waterstrat and Brandon Ingersoll, let me know if that's not cool.
To everyone who joined VMBA just to get the Super 8 files -- thank you for your contribution. The Vermont Bikepackers chapter of VMBA grew last year from 19 to about 50 members. Past members who joined before the Super 8 was free can expect a commemorative gift in the mail .
@everyone -- please let me know ASAP if there's anything wonky / if you have trouble downloading routes or anything because this fish is already in the water.
Thank you to those of you who provided and continue to provide constructive feedback on these projects, especially to those of you who rode the XVT and the Super 8 in their nascent stages. They will continue to develop in the future, but getting to the point where some of the people who started charting these routes are comfortable enough to release them into the wild rather than over constant individual communication is a huge step forward. Remember that you were part of these routes before they were a thing. Because I guess now they are a thing.
