Come learn about the longest mapped mountain bike route in the world -- the Great Divide -- with Adventure Cycling's Executive Director Jim Sayer and motivational speaker and philanthropist Carrie Morgridge, who has just published a thrilling book about riding all 2,774 miles of this incredible bicycle route.
From Carrie, you'll hear how she and her husband John - in their 50s - made a choice that some might call crazy. Putting their busy lives aside for two months, they tackled the wild and scenic Great Divide in just 46 days. She's written The Spirit of the Trail: The Journey to Fulfillment along the Continental Divide about their adventure and will be signing books at the end of the event. From Jim, you'll hear about how Adventure Cycling has just extended the Great Divide route and radically improved the maps. You'll also hear about new trends in cycling and adventure travel, including off-pavement bikepacking.
