Riders on the trail

A fun value added part of our ride is that there is a race underway on the route we’re on. It started in Banff BC for most racers and they head south to Antelope Wells NM. The fastest make it in about 14 days and we’ve heard that this will be a fast year for the leaders. 4 of the 5 leaders passed us two days ago and racers in 7th and 8th positions (at the time) stayed last night at the bike hostel we’re at. Our Great Divide map page on our website shows them spread out along the route. It’s updated in realtime using the same satellite and mapping system we’re using for our daily check-ins and CD crossings. Keep on pedaling!
