GDMBR Canada Map Availability
« on: February 07, 2012, 10:41:15 pm »
Any forecast on when the backordered canada section of the GDMBR mapset will be available?  Also can anyone explain to me the difference in buying the "route narratives" or what exactly they look like/are, because i am feeling kind of ignorant  :-[

Hi rOOster14,

The Great Divide Canada maps became available this week.

The narratives are text files of the directions as presented on the maps. You can then do as you wish with them: change the font size, print in grouping for daily mileage, etc.

I hope this helps.

Hello!
Yes the backorder will be filled automatically and we can only send the narratives via email. If for some reason you were not sent yours please contact cyclosource@adventurecycling.org and we'll get them out to you, stat!
Thanks,

Are downloadable narratives available for all of the routes? I just bought the western two sections of the NT, and I'd love to have text files of the narrative that I could reformat, etc. I don't see a place for them on the website.

Jennifer wrote in post above your question, "we can only send the narratives via email." I'd expect them to be offered to those who have bought the maps.

Unfortunately, the only narratives we have available in this format are for the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.
