Tour Divide 2015 Grand Depart

When you wake up for the next 3 or 4 weeks there is going to be a group of bike riders heading south towards the Mexico/USA border and another crew heading east towards the Virginia coast.

Steve is up in Banff (well actually headed out as I type this) hanging out with fellow riders and doing some easy pre-rides and providing us with some cool photos in the meantime.  That is how these types of rides go - you find an individual or two and end up sharing stories, misery and smiles for the next 3 weeks.

As you can see in the above photo, Scott has made it to Montana and seems to be finding his riding zone because he is smiling!

That is how I met Scott - we rode together in the TransIowa 3 years ago for roughly 200 miles and you just connect with people in that situation.  I have ridden with guys that I met only because of a common drive and still keep in touch with them - that is the cool thing about cycling long distances - meeting like minded individuals!

Keep an eye out on them, send them some good thoughts through their individual page, and go out and ride your bike this weekend!
