Tour Divide

It’s time. I’m leaving to catch a Greyhound bus for Banff in 30 minutes, so this will likely be the last post until July 10th or so—when I hope to finish the 2,700-mile mountain bike race from Banff, Canada to Mexico border at Antelope Wells, NM.

The race actually starts at noon on Friday, June 13th. I will be wearing a tracking device courtesy of SPOT, so you can track my progress (in real time, I think) here:

Furthermore, I will be calling race headquarters every couple days or so to check in and leave a message on my status. The actual voice recordings and transcriptions will be here:

When I return, I will post photos and a write-up on the race.

Until then, bon courage!
