I am a member of ACA. I love watching the Ride the Divide video about the unsupported unofficial no reward ride from Banff to Antelope Wells, NM.
In 2010 I did the C&O Canal/GAP from D. C. to Pittsburgh.
So now I'm thinking and wondering about this. No Entry Fees - No Prizes - No Support......but you are somewhat close to civilization.
Oh yeah, no grizzlies reported in the area.
