Celebrate more than 20 years of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route with a ride through the unforgettable high plains of Wyoming. This 11-day trip in the shadow of the Wind River and Gros Ventre (grow-vaunt) mountains may not look like a high-altitude route with the sky reaching out to distant horizons, but you’ll top 9,600 feet as you ride through the beginnings of the Wind, Green, and Snake river drainages, which eventually feed the mighty Missouri, Columbia, and Colorado rivers.

Along the way you’ll visit small towns that could pass for spaghetti western sets and soak in history that includes the Astor Expedition, the Oregon Trail, and Native American tribes that lived in and traveled around the region. And all the while you’ll be pedaling along the Great Divide — you might just be inspired to keep going all the way to the Mexican border!
