Reviewed By: Cindy on 1/31/21

We purchased this book in anticipation of riding the Divide this summer. The book may be helpful for those who are very goal oriented and want to find the most motels and amenities along the route. The authors are to be commended for their generosity in donating the proceeds of the book sales to ACA. As for the "spirit of the trail" I am sorry to say I found little that was inspriring or conveyed the joy of the ride. Instead it was self-promoting and tedious. One can find much more enjoyable reads on crazyguy journals.
