Mostly dirt roads, a little pavement, some single track, and 100% adventure await on the great Divide Mountain Bike Route from Canada to Mexico. Cyclists dream of and plan for this life-list trip that starts in Banff, Alberta and rolls through 2,745 miles of wild mountainous beauty all the way to antelope Wells, New Mexico. Michael McCoy and the Adventure Cycling Association (ACA) provide a segmented route guide for you to follow in its entirety or section ride to suit your schedule and stamina. This fully updated edition provides the information you need to stay on route and find food, water, bike supplies, and shelter (camp or stay in small-town accommodations) over the entire adventure.

Updated content in the 2nd edition includes info on the 254 miles in Canada that were recently added to the route (with maps and photos), as well as changes and additions to the evolving trail, new resources to access on your trip, and new and revised maps.

As the national coordinator of ACA's Great Divide Mountain Bike Route project, Mike McCoy helped conceive, research, and map this famed route. His bike trail-related career spans more than 30 years: He first helped plan Bikecentennial's TransAmerica Bicycle Trail in 1975, while today he continues as a field editor for Adventure Cycling. He's the author of 10 books, and lives in Teton Valley, Idaho. Find him at http://blog.adventurecycling.org and atwww.bikeovernights.org. Adventure Cycling Association inspires and empowers people of all ages to travel by bicycle.

Updated information for the entire route, including an additional 254 miles in Canada.
