All articles filed in great divide mountain bike ride
One sore shoulder, two sore bums, bleeding money, running out of time, running out of towns and water, no real great place for Marty’s parents to pick us up, and my hair tie finally broke, so we decided to put our ride on hold in Rawlins, WY. But one little problem, how do we get…Read More
Oh Great Basin!
So when I left off we were trying to get out of the Jackson Hole area and this we did manage to do. We climbed up and over Togwotee Pass and the Continental Divide without too much a problem, stopping at the lake on the top for a snack. Later we found out that once…Read More
Stuck in a hole…..Jackson Hole that is
It is always amazing how days can fly by one after another. We expected to to be in Colter Bay a couple of nights and then move on, well that is not how it ended up. After Jackson we were going to go to Jenny Lake to explore, instead we decided we would stay another…Read More
Holy Cow, Where are We Now???
There are road blocks and there are cow blocks. After leaving Wise River, we headed toward the old ghost town of Bannack. We battled a headwind for a little while, and made it up a massive switchback hill, but after a quick rest our block was the biggest herd of cows to date. Typically, we’ve…Read More
After two days off in Helena, starting on the road again felt like day 1. We only managed to make it about 20 miles. Most of which was uphill and I could definitely feel the altitude going up quickly, but our goal was to make it over two mountain passes to sort of put us…Read More
Now for ME to give this blog thing a try..
Hello all, there are as we know always at least two sides to a story and I must say Michelle is doing a great job with ours, but alas, she has left out a few things or altered them to her benefit. Like for instance, drafting. Yes, I do draft off of her more than…Read More
Hey! New Plan…
Okay so maybe we’ve been “cheating” just a little bit on our ride. Marty and I are used to planning our own routes and doing our own thing and sometimes the planned route is just not what we care for? So new plan, we do what we want! We’ve traded some of the trail for…Read More
7 Days, 335 Miles, 2 Provinces, 1 Big Montana!
Where to start?! Marty and I had a late start out of Banff. It was raining, not drizzling, raining. The terrain was alot of rock, ups and downs, fording large puddles, and basically a whole lot of not fun. We stopped at the first campground about 20 miles in and set up camp. So grateful…Read More
A Year-and-a-half in Review…
Marty and I met a year-and-a-half ago, that’s when I first heard of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and of this whole notion of bike camping. He was planning on going the summer of 2018, but instead helped me train (and ride my bike correctly…) for my first triathlon. A few weeks after my…Read More
