Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route or GDMBR is the world’s longest mountain bike route. It is a route of some 4,500 km / 2,800 mi and runs from Banff in Canada, country in which it traverses the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, to Antelope Wells on the border between Mexico and the United States. Within the US it takes you through the states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. This means it is as long as a route between Lisbon (Portugal) and Moscow (Russia).

The Adventure Cycling Association gave it life back in the 90s tracing along the watershed that separates the basins of the Arctic - Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, crossing it thirty times in different places.

To complete it usually demands between 70 to 90 days although the record is in 12 days. Some keen cyclists complete it each year while others prefer to plan stages that they cycle  at different times and seasons.

The GDMBR also marks the route of the Tour Divide Race, an ultra-cycling challenge that participants pedal solo and self-supported.

What else is there
The tour is a festival of nature to enjoy with all senses. From the rugged Rocky Mountains or lush national parks like Yellowstone or Grand Teton to vast wilderness areas and wild places with different native floras and faunas. Some of the towns that you find a pedal stroke away are Roosville, Polaris, South Pass City, Silverthorne, Platoro and Pie Town.

Notes
Self sufficiency is required, since the distances between towns that you can use for supplies of water and food are long and in many cases difficult. Furthermore,it is advisable to carry spare parts for the bike, as the places that you pass are usually small and not always well stocked for MTB spare parts.
