The Great Divide Mountain Bike Route is the longest off-pavement cycling route in the world. It runs from Mexico to Canada, paralleling the Continental Divide. We’re joined now by one of the people who created the route and who just published a guide book for it.
His name is Mike McCoy, and he lives in Victor, Idaho. McCoy says the idea for the route grew out of the work he was doing with the Adventure Cycling Association.
