Michelle's story: Great Divide Mountain Bike Route

BaseCamp alumnus Michelle Hildebrand shared her experience on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.

I made it to the Mexico border!!! After 40 days (38 riding), I completed the 2700-mile journey from Banff to Antelope Wells and can say it was a trip of a lifetime! The Great Divide Mountain Bike route is beautiful and challenging but very doable as this was my first ever bikepacking trip. I had grand plans for some overnighters to test my gear, but life got in the way. Thankfully all of the BaseCamp miles the past couple of years gave me a huge base, which made the 70 miles a day feel very manageable. If you ever have the chance to ride part or all of the route, just do it!

Hope to see some of you at RPI!
