Join Adventure Cycling Association's Michael McCoy at the Berkeley REI on October 24 to celebrate the release of the second edition of Cycling the Great Divide: From Canada to Mexico on North America's Premier Long-Distance Mountain Bike Route (The Mountaineers Books, 2013).
The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route is the longest off-pavement route in the world spanning 2,774 miles from Canada to Mexico following the spine of the Rocky Mountains. McCoy researched and mapped the route in the 1990s and subsequently wrote the guidebook, first published in 2000. At these events he will discuss the creation of the Great Divide route, screen a short new video showing off highlights from the route, share slides from his own recent travels on the Great Divide, and field any questions you may have about the route that some say is largely responsible for the bikepacking and dirt-road touring movements now gaining momentum.
When: Thursday, October 24, 7–8:30 pm
Where: Berkeley REI, 1338 San Pablo Avenue
This event is free and space is limited so please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 532-2751 by Friday, October 18.
We look forward to seeing you in Berkeley!
