My story

[p]https://www.facebook.com/dancarltourdivide2018/[/p][p]Carl and I will be undertaking what will be without doubt our most challenging Adventure to date. The GDMBR, developed and mapped in 1997 by the [url=http://www.adventurecycling.org/]Adventure Cycling Association[/url], is approximately 2,700 miles long and is considered to be the birthplace of bikepacking as a sport. The route follows the Continental Divide and is 90% off-pavement using high-quality dirt roads, gravel roads, trails, and a few short sections of unmaintained tracks. Bikepacking the GDMBR requires only intermediate off-road mountain biking skills, but it is a painstaking test of endurance based on the sheer scale of the route, with over 200,000 feet (60,960 meters) of elevation gain and loss.[/p][p]The GDMBR is routed through a cross-section of the American West defined by spectacular scenery, a variety of landscapes, historic mountain towns, and boundless remote wilderness. Highlights include the Flathead Valley in Alberta, Grand Teton National Park, the Great Divide Basin in Wyoming, South Park, Boreas Pass in Colorado, Polvadera Mesa, and the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico. Colorado’s Indiana Pass, at 11,910 feet (3630 meters), is the highest point on the route. Throughout the route riders encounter wild river valleys, remote mountain wilderness, open grasslands, high desert, and towards the southern end of the route, an amazing span through the Chihuahuan Desert.[/p][p]Wish us luck...... we're going to need it ![/p][p]Thanks for taking the time to read about our trip and we very much appreciate any donation you're able to give.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
