I am 44 years old and it has been my dream for the past 2 years + to ride the divide. Ever since I first watched the movie I have wanted to do it. So almost two years ago I bought all my gear, bags, everything i would need.. I have been training for the past 2 years and will continuue to train up until the day I fly to Banff.. I live on Maui and am orginally from Colorado. I would love to meet some others that are looking for another rider to join them. I had a few that were going to ride with me but it looks as if just recently they have had a change of heart. I have not.. I am driven to do this and can't wait. I am not looking to do this ride as a race but more just to complete it. I am thinking that I would like to do somewhere between 50 to 70 miles per day.. Maybe even taking a day off?? I am totally flexable.. We can camp or if the housing is avalible we can do that too.. I am very flexable. I would like to arrive in Banff around July 1 and set off on the trail around July 3 or 4th. Just want to get adjusted to the elevation, check on equipment and enjoy Banff for a couple of days.. I have never been and hear its beautiful.
I hope to hear back from you....Thanks! Tim
