An undertaking as large as the Trans Euro Trail® needs passionate and dedicated care.
As the Trans Euro Trail® winds its way across Europe, through forests and medieval villages, across high mountain passes, open pastures and tundra, in the heat and cold, rain, wind and sun, each kilometer has been mapped, ridden and checked by volunteers and previous travellers. The tracks, comments and amendments are then passed to the country’s Linesman or woman who coordinates the development and evolution of the Trans Euro Trail® on his or her patch.
Once content with the next version of their section of the trail they pass it on to TET HQ for adding to the website as the definitive route. All Linesmen give up their time freely and willingly. All are riders and all have a passion to share their love of the trails and landscapes of their countries with others. Some assume the role for a year, some for longer.
Linesmen are not paid but are rewarded with the sight of photos, ride reports and videos, the submission of trail reports by users and by the occasional e-mail of thanks!
