 Can someone explain the Incline section to me? This is clearly a downhill trail. The old portion of Incline is barely walkable never mind bikable and the new line is a beautiful machine built downhill rip....Are we really going to climb up instead?

 This unorthodox route includes a short hike which enables people from 36 different countries to enjoy both the flow of Mushroom and Upper Dale's as well as some North Shore gnar, while keeping the rubber off the pavement as much as possible. For more information feel free to contact info@bcbikerace.com.

 Hello. I´m having troubles getting the downloaded .gpx from trailfols to upload on my garmin connect to use it as route for my Edge100. I get an error message on the Garmin site. HAve used several gpx converters, none worked. Is there an option on trailfols to export to my Garminconnect? What do you suggest? Thanks

 Seems the Garmin website only will import a GPX if it has timestamps on each point. So I just generated fake ones for the route gpx files. So they should import to the Garmin connect site now.
