The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route starts in the dry desert of New Mexico, on the Mexican border, and goes north to end in Canada near Banff National Park. At over 2,700 miles, it is the longest established bikepacking route and crosses over the Continental Divide nearly 30 times. Join us as our own REI Greenvest talks about why she wanted to do it, why she loves bikepacking as a means to travel, and how she prepared. If you are new to bikepacking or just want a reminder of why you love it, stop by!
