John Bowen's USA 2013 Cycle Touring Blog


The plan is to ride the GDMBR (Great Divide Mountain Bike Route) from the Mexican border to the Canadian border. It's a route which has been mapped out by the ACA (Adventure cycling association), to follow as closely as possible the Continental Divide of the USA. Mountains and lots of dirt tracks all the way for over 2700 miles!
