Not quite on the spur of the moment … I decided to spend the summer on the Great Continental Divide Mountain Bike Ride. It’s April now, I’m 46, and weigh 225 pounds. I figure that if a happily married father of two can get it together and go on an adventure that there are probably other folks out there giving thinking about their own adventures. I’ll keep you posted on how I do; send me a note sometime and let me know how your own adventures go.
If you havent’ been reading the posts, here’s an important update. Update part I: my daughter Andrea, 19, wants in on the adventure. Update part II: we’re leaving in a few days!
Here’s the plan:
- Post on the preparations.
- Share the tribulations, celebrate the joys.
- Pass along anything I did right or would have done differently.
- Share a ton of pictures along the way.
- Post the gear I use and let you know how it worked.
I’ll try to get out several posts each week.
There’s no money involved. No mailing lists. I’ve been riding far and wide for most of my life and my many joys have come from the kindness of strangers. This is my chance to share a bit of my experience back.
