No problem.

We are working on getting some more info up on ACA's website, but for now if you want a general idea of what the route is about, check out these articles:

No goatheads. I ran tubes and lightweight tires and never punctured. Maybe I just need to rage more, huh.

On the Main Route, the elevation will range from 3000ft to 8900ft. The singletrack option through the White Clouds tops out at just under 10000ft.

Great Divide Section 3 - Map B

This picture is from Wyoming SR 70 somewhere between miles 25.0 & 42.1.

Bruce Burrows, from the Wyoming Department of transportation, and his on-site engineers in the area have granted permission for cyclists to walk around the landslide on State Route 70. The engineers seem to be confident that racing and touring mtb'rs are savy enough to get around it. He did stress to use caution. Also, there could be people/heavy equipment working in the area.

This might change later in the summer when they start working on the road. Here is number to contact for more info:
Wyoming Department of Transportation - 307.777.4375

Again, the Wyoming Department of Transport has granted permission for cyclists to walk around the landslide

Hi everyone, I'm Casey, a cartographer here at Adventure Cycling Association. For about a year now I've been handling the mapping, including the Corridor plan, for the United States Bicycle Route System. If anyone has any suggestions or comments on the routes, now is definitely the time to let your voice be heard.

cheers :-)
