Routes / Great Divide Route - Type of Bike
« on: November 27, 2008, 07:32:57 am »
What's the best style bike for the Great Divide?  Is a touring style bike practical? What do most riders choose for this type of terrain?  I am more interested in comfort than speed.


Routes / Great Divide - Unsupported
« on: September 09, 2008, 10:51:49 am »
I'm looking for input on the Great Divide in preparation for a trip next year. I'm planning an unsupported ride, possibly solo or with a small group.
Starting/Ending points?
Ship supplies ahead or are there sufficient sources to buy along the way in 2-3 day increments?
How to get to the start?  fly, car, bus?
Cell connectivity on the route?
Recommended bike - mountain or cross or what?
Carry bear spray?

Routes / Allegheny Bike Route

Coincidentally I'm headed to the Great Allegheny Trail today and wondered where the Loop is located? I plan to start at Rockland and then head up to McKeesport & then back to Rockland and points South.

I'm looking for information on the Great Divide for a trip next year.  If you are going unsupported I'd be interested in how you plan to handle resupply of food and fuel? I'm trying to figure out the mechanics of doing an unsupported trip.

Thank you!
