Paula and Scott's Great Divide Ride
We left the Mexican border with many unknowns. Perhaps most unknown was how fast we would ride. Throughout the trip we toggled between riding quickly (trying to set a women's record) and simply enjoying all there is to enjoy on the divide. In the end we (sort of) accomplished both during what turned out to be an incredible journey. (Scott Morris, Jun, 2004)
