Our friends at RoadRUNNER Magazine assisted us in the development of a brand new Appalachian Backroads map! After spending days, on more than one occasion, riding our roads, they helped us expand and refine the routes so you'll get the most out of the best back roads in the region! They even laid claim to their favorite route, named in their honor, the ROADRUNNER! The improvements even called for a new website to share them, so here you go... enjoy your ride!
RoadRUNNER added a technical difficulty indicator to our new map. One curvy arrow is "technical" and two curvy arrows indicated an "extremely technical" route.
