- Banff to Antelope Wells…..giggles …..
I’ve been given permission by the holder of the family finances and logistics to pack my job in next year if I haven’t got a new job by then that will let me have 4 weeks off to…. Ride The Divide!Posted 5 years ago
It’s going to be mint!
I have nothing else to say at this point. I’ll probably have lots to say until I fly to USA.
Whooo and indeed HOOOO!
80% doubletrack? Yawn
I used to think I’d like to do this route, but then I realised I’d be doing to say that I’d done it rather than because I actually wanted to.
Much more interesting long distance routes around, I think, e.g. http://www.grande-traversee-alpes.com/chemins-du-soleil/les-chemins-du-soleil/carte-de-litinerairePosted 5 years ago
Thanks! Quietly panicking now though.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve done the Sarn Helen in under 4 days towing a trailer, I’ve ridden down from Edinburger to Glentress and camped in the forest, I’ve done the SDW in a day a couple of times..
My longest single day ride to date was 225 miles, London to Manchester. I regularly do 130 mile road rides….I’m going to die, aren’t I?
My most favourite ever off road ride by a long way has the been SDW. It just suits me fine.
I have the End to End pencilled in over 4 days (poss, 5) next spring.
No book or blog I wouldn’t have thought. I want to do it because I want to do it- apologise if that sounds glib. Not intended. A kind of selfish ‘just for me’ kind of thing.
I’ve just bought that book on Kindle NBT, but thank you. I’d not heard of the bear bones thing. i’ll start head pecking on their now. Thank you.
Waves to the long time, not seen Callum.
Thanks to evrybody for the good wishes. I’ll not go on about it too much….yeah, like!BlackhoundSubscriber
Enjoy it Monksie, some lovely places on the route. From what you have previously done you should be fine. Brush Mountain Lodge is worth a stop as is Como Depot (South side of Boreas Pass) owned by an Englishman called Dave.
Download ‘Be Brave, Be Strong’ by Jill Homer and/or view her blog. Preferred it to Paul Howards book personally.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks! Still worried 🙂Posted 5 years ago
I’ll research some of those places Blackhound.
I’ve just finished Be Brave, Be Strong. She’s very American isn’t she?
I’ll not be worrying your record Jenn. Shorter route, with gears, twice as long to do it.
Pie Town….even the name of it makes me smile.
