Mark rode the Great Divide in segments over a couple of years trying out different options: supported, solo, for leisure, and as time allowed. The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (GDMBR) spans the US and into Canada for a 2,800 mile bike packing route. Choosing the right Rig (aka Bike), clothing, and specific camping and biking gear is just the beginning. Learn about necessary skills, training, and riding ability required as well as when to go and the logistics at start point(s) in Banff, AL, or Antelope Wells, N.M. Finally figure out how you will do it. For this thru-ride you can experience it end to end or pick it off in segments when time allows. Go for it alone, with an intimate small group or with a large group supported by a team.
