Trans Euro Trail

Post by redballrun » 20 Apr 2016 13:34

Hi there,
I'm coordinating the creation of a Trans Euro Trail - a bit like the Trans America Trail.
We're aiming to map out a route from Tarifa in Spain to North Cape, Norway using legal unsurfaced roads, tracks, beaches and paths as much as possible. We are doing well. (http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/t ... as.687130/). As well as running a direct Western Europe North-South route, it would be nice to loop round from southern France through Italy, down through the Balkans then back up through eastern Europe to the Baltic states, Finland and up to Norway that way. Can you guys help contribute toi the Balkan section??
The aim is to make the track available free of charge with local riders maintaining the up to date status of their sections. It is aimed at middle weight trail bikes like the WR250R, DRZ400, XR400, F800GS, GP450, XT660Z, KTM 690 and the like carrying light camping gear. Minimum asphalt, beautiful scenery, fun, challenging but not ridiculously technical.
All the best

Well redballrum

This is epic idea :)
Thru this part of Balkan, Montenegro especially there are off road paths just perfect for your idea. It can be done in one day or even several.
Entry point is from Bosnia I guess?

We currently have a route along the Italian Alps from near the French border then dipping down to Slovenia. So yes, entry into Montenegro from Bosnia then heading south to Albania and onto Greece. We do not have any contributions from or contacts in your part of the world so your route would be the first then Bosnian and Albanian bits can be tagged onto the ends of yours and so on. If yoiu have any contacts in neighbouring countries or forums covering their areas please pass this on. If you PM your e-mail address to my advrider inbox, I'll add you to the Facebook group where we are gathering the info with its links to Wikiloc for the tracks.

Thanks for the really positive responses! DrMracni is now on board. Anyone else?
Also if you have any tracks heading off south or north from Montenegro they would be really useful

you need only gravel roads, or we can suggest some asphalt B roads from us to Albania, Bosnia, Serbia?
