Great Divide
Rooseville, MT Montana reeks of fresh single-track, fly fisherman and freedom that I could smell as far as 10 miles from the border where I became stranded on the side of the road with a broken chain in hand and no tool to fix it. As much as I wanted unveil my soggy passport to border patrol, the motherland wouldn’t allow me such easy access. A local rancher and handyman, Paul, saw the look and desperation in my teary eyes to glide across into big sky country, so he escorted me to his pickup, and quickly repaired my severed chain with a chainsaw file and set of pliers. The U.S. invited us in with welcome arms and the hardest downpour on the trip so far. Missoula was on our minds and it was going to take riding hardly rideable bikes to get us there.

  • What was the genesis moment or inspiration for your upcoming adventure? When Blackburn took us under their wing. We were only half serious about doing the ride beforehand and would not have done it at all this year without someone to report to.Thanks guys for the inspiration!
  • What is your goal for the route? Have a better time on the road then I could have possibly had if I had stayed at home. I was having a pretty good time at home!
  • Have you traveled by bike in the past? Yes. Pacific NW, SF-Palm Springs, Trans AM, Portland-Panama
  • What do you hope to get out of this journey? A contact list full of new friends and some remarkable tan lines on my rippling thighs.
