Spanning 2,700 miles from Banff, Alberta, to Antelope Wells, New Mexico, the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route annually serves as the host for the Tour Divide Bikepacking race. With no awards or prize money for the winners and no entry fee, the Tour Divide is the ultimate athletic test of endurance and self-sufficiency in a battle against nature, the elements, breakdowns (both mechanical and mental), and fatigue, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Continental Divide. Divide by Two Wheels is the story of one man’s experience in racing the 2016 Tour Divide, overcoming the adversities of the route and the challenges of equipment failure while making friends and experiencing the kindness of strangers along the way. This story of an epic adventure will have you dreaming of your own Tour Divide experience, learning what you are truly capable of with new challenges around every corner and over every summit.
