You have a starting point and a destination, but what about the route in between? When exploring the backcountry on a bike expedition, a plan should be in place as to the specific route. Going off unplanned more often than not, when a well equipped biker with a GPS feels the urge to break off the main route and blaze a path into the unknown, can take an unexpected turn, one that at first seemed more efficient, now requires more energy, longer trail time and possibly lead to dean ends or worse – to just getting lost! As thrilling as trail blazing may seem, this is the time to stick to a plan.
