Great Divide Mountain Bike Route
Just like to ask of who here has ridden the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route .
What route or routes did you ride?
What did you think of it?
Is the route totally uninterrupted or does it disappear sometimes, due to development etc?
it goes on roads in a lot of places. Some of those roads are paved and fairly busy
Find the file you want, save, and open in GoogleEarth.
Should give you a great overview.
Yup, some are bad condition also... From what i've read a few riders this year said they will not return due to too much road, but that might be due to the fact certain mountain passes were closed.

Watch the film "Ride the Divide". If nothing else, it will give you a good overview of the mental state of the participants before and during the race. It's brutal. In a good way.
last year I gave it shot, rode from Banff to Butte in 7 days, and bonked in a crazy way, with saddle sores like never before...
its a beautiful experience, of what I managed to try. Its forever changed my scope of cycling. That is, a day on the bike, a series of climbs, a bike tour, etc... all of that now has a different measure.
