Great Divide MTB Route Tours

Celebrate the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route’s 20th birthday with the founders of this famous bike route. We have five tours to choose from—ranging in length from 10 to 12 days. Ride through the unforgettable high plains of Wyoming, crest the Continental Divide in Montana, ride along the iconic route’s sky-scraping Colorado alpine section, or experience the Canadian portion of the Great Divide. This latter tour includes 114 miles of virgin riding through British Columbia’s Flathead and Wigwam River Valleys, called the ‘Serengeti of North America’ by biologists for its unrivaled wildlife populations. The Great Divide features some of the most magnificent and forbidding mountain country you’ll ever see.

There are only 12 spots available for each of the four small group tours along a segment of the world’s longest mountain bike route and fifty spots on the Cycle the Divide - Montana tour.
